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.
