Just got a Bane,

In the area where the emitter, i guess shroud, forgive me, I don't know all the terms, comes down to flank the power and ignition switch, the silver part of it is very sharp and that makes it uncomfortable to hold in my hand.



Especially where it's kinda folded down, but all those edges are pretty sharp.

Is there any issue with taking some sandpaper to it to try to round off those edges at all?

Shouldnt be any issue. SF hilts often have sharp edges. Use 400 grit or higher for an even and smooth edge.

It's kind of ironic that it's sharp at the beveled corners, since it's likely SF beveled them to remove the two sharp points at that part of the switch.

There's no issue using some sandpaper (especially fine grit, as Jas-Ot recommends) to round off the edges on the silver parts; I did that with my standard Fury and it didn't affect the appearance a great deal. Where it gets trickier is with black or weathered portions, since sanding it down will strip off the anodization (color) of those components. So you'll want to be especially careful you don't touch the black finish below the silver or that light weathering on its surface when sanding down the corners/edges.
