Any tricks for stirring rock hard Tahini?

I have a new jar of Tahini. Great news, except now I have to stir it. I'm not exactly weak, however blending the oil layer with the stiff Tahini paste is a pain. Anyone have any tips for making this chore easier? Thank you!

No tricks; a butter knife and elbow grease (and patience).

The only other thing I can think of is to scoop the whole thing out into a food processor and let it rip.

Or maybe dip the jar in some warm/hot water to loosen it up.

If the jar is the same lid size as a peanut butter jar use this:

Another tip is when you first buy it store it upside down a while...and flip it every time you see it. It'll mix on its own after a week or so.
