Tool to remove front lens gasket and retaining ring

My old 300/4 got (again) fungus, I haven't used it since ages but I'd like to attempt a do it yourself clean and as such I need a tool to remove the retaining ring off the front of the lens, I don't have a clue how is that called (seen it in a youtube video a while ago) and as such nor I know how to look up for it, any clue?

By the way the lens I want to take apart is the Nikon 300mm f4 ED, very old screw driven focus lens with rear slot for 39mm filters

Grazie
