Threading and cutting a fork is a bit more complicated than it might
seem. Almost any shop can do it, but....
1) Cutting threads does weaken the steer tube more than rolling them
(the way the manufacturer puts 'em on). It's probably not going to
cause any problems, but the shorter the steer tube is, the more likely
it is to fail at the threads.
2) Most steer tubes are butted - that is, fatter on the ends, thinner
in the middle. If you cut an inch off, you're likely to have the
critical portion of the threads extend into the thinner section of
steer tube. NOT a good thing.
Try to find a shop with some experience - if they don't warn you about
the above items, I'd be very careful.
