Use a sawzall with a metal cutting blade. A "Finetool (sp?)" (or one of the dozens of knock offs) would probably do it as well. A VERY handy tool to have BTW, cuts most materials, sands, etc. with precision.
Edit: The more I think about this, the Finetool probably isn't the tool for the job. However, I would be amazed if the Sawzall with a good, fine tooth, "thick" metal cutting blade wouldn't cut it. I'm a Carpenter, and I've cut everything from thick fiberglass and re-bar to 1/4 inch steel with this set up. One trick with a Sawzall is to keep the base of the tool against the material when possible. This stabilizes the tool and generally makes it much more effective. It's what the base is designed for, but many people don't use it. For some reason, it's not intuitive. Often, we flip the blade upside down to obtain better access. An example might be as you get closer to the mast (it gets the handle out of the way). It might take a couple of blades, but I bet you'll get through the Spartite. If not, contact Spartite via their Website, and ask them. I found their customer service pretty good. Let us know what they say!
