stem dilemma

I want to switch out quill stems, my current one is a modolo 120mm, and it feels too long. I have a 100mm cinelli, but it's trapped by vintage hand sewn leather bar wrap:

my choices are:
1. cut the stitching and free the stem. Will doing this devalue the bar / stem / lever / leather combo?
2. Use the cinelli bar / stem combo on another future bike, or sell as is. Buy a shorter stem for my current bike.
