If so, how?

For me I usually sand the neck wing things down so that when I grip the handle my thumb touches both the rubber and my middle finger. I find that its way more comfortable than just sanding the edges of the wings.

i just sand the edge where my index finger sits as it tends to get caught on the edge and some times gets stuck which results in lots of nerve pain

yes that's all I do too... and only if it's required, as many blades have this done already.

I have shaved a blade down that had too much vibration. I had a friend take the majority off with a belt sander then I sanded down the edges to my liking.
1. It made the blade a little faster
2. It took off the unwanted vibration (and made it more enjoyable to play with)

Do I like to modify blades?

NO.

That's why I am using the blade I do now. No modification required for my hand.

No modding really, except I have sanded a laquered handle down to bare wood.

As mentioned elsewhere I have a fear of flying bats...
