That's my thinking right there, gradually. I just want to angle it at the heel further back (the PM9 I was talking about) and add some curve in the mid portion where it is straight now so that should be easy enough once warm enough.
I learned pretty quickly with the composite shaft after using aluminum shafts since the early 90s that you could burn into oblivion that a torch was taboo and not good to do on a composite shaft. Bubbles the graphics and ruins the material or something like that. I haven't done it, I just read not to. I did get the graphics bubbling too close to an electric stove burner.
I have been using an electric heat gun made for paint stripping. I think it can get hot enough to reshape a blade gradually like you mentioned.
I wonder if shaving the bottom would work on blades that are not my lie I like to make them my lie. Does this carbon fiber stuff shave easily or would I be wasting my time? Maybe on a bench grinder or would that just cause the fibrous stuff to frizz out like fiberglas does??
