I dont believe you can actually 'trim' a Rhodactis. More than likely that would just result in infection and the loss of your mushroom. I know you said you dont want to frag it, but if you change your mind- a clean razor blade, right through the middle of the mushroom and its mouth. Rhodactis dont take as well to fragging as, say, a Discosoma would IME, but it can still be done.

If you want to trim up the Leather, get a nice sharp knife, and trim away. If the colony is healthy and well established to start with, it should take trimming just fine. Heads up though- dont do it in the tank- they release copious amounts of toxins into the water, and can damage other corals in the tank.
Reaching up and reaching out and reaching for the random, or whatever will bewilder me.
