Holy christ dude get a clue. Why should he cut his stick shorter if it's already a length he prefers. Changing lie is a much better option as it won't alter his shot mechanics the way a cut stick will. Even if it is only an inch it will change the flex and also bring the puck closer to his feet.

OP, I don't think you'll be able to find a retail blade lower than a 5. Warrior blades might be marked 4, but as was said they're closer to a 5 from other brands. I started off with an Easton Sakic curve with a 5.5 lie. Lots of heel wear and pucks squirting under the toe of my blade. Moved down to the Forsberg/Zetterberg and Bauer PM9, 5 lie. Now I have almost perfect even wear, didn't need to alter my stick length at all.
