No it does not if you do it correctly, you can in fact form graphite blades like you would wood blade you just have to be a bit more careful.

The key to forming a graphite / carbon blade it to heat it more slowly and evenly as opposed to how you would a wood blade. Knowing how to distance your heat and keeping the torch moving is not hard to learn if you have any sort of common sense.

I have formed many blades on one-piece sticks and have never had an issue with durability from the work I did to it. In fact most professional player like to tweak there own sticks as well with the same process.
