You might "trim" or shorten the shaft of a Golf club if it is too long for the person using it. Basically, the club was designed for a taller person than the one wishing to use it, but it is often cheaper to shorten the shaft of an old club than get a new shaft or new club.

For a steel shaft, a tubing cutter is the best way. You get a clean cut perpendicular to the axis. You'll need to have a hardened wheel that can handle the stainless steel. For high production volume shops a cutoff saw with an abrasive wheel is typical.For graphite, a hacksaw with an abrasive blade works well.If you want to know how much to cut off, you can get basic recommendations from whoever sold you the shaft.
