I cut mine about 2". You can't go any more than that really with a stock knob as the base of the knob will hit the spring for reverse. You could probably go more with an aftermarket knob.

Just about 2" before the plastic insert from the OEM knob hits the reverse spring, as already mentioned. Though you could probably cut the shifter more with an aftermarket knob, I'm not sure that you'd want to do that because the shifting efforts would be greatly increased and can feel "not so nice" in the hand. JMHO.
