You can cut it. Although a solid carbide shank is gonna eat up a grinder wheel. I use insert tooling in my metal lathe to cut carbide. But I don t usually cut a 1/2” solid shank of it. If you have a machine shop or a tool and die shop nearby, they would probably shorten it for not much money provided they have the appropriate equipment.
