I would imagine they are all threaded for that obvious reason, however The can be a bear to remove.

My memory finally came back enough for me to remember what I did... The one I had that would not come off for anything; I used a dremel with a very thin/small cutting wheel and sliced the knob inner portion that was stuck on each side and with a twist of a screwdriver it came off. Granted it did cut a groove into the threads in two places, but they were plenty enough left to serve it's purpose of simply attaching a knob.
