Fully meltable ends (e.g. nylon, polyester, etc) can be tapered nicely over a gas stove.
Non-meltable ends (e.g. aramid sheath): seal an inch or so of sheath in the area to be cut with seam grip, whip-end dip, or similar. When dry, cut rope cleanly with a razor blade at midpoint of sealed area. Pull about 1.5" of core material out of the sheath and cut it off. Use additional seam grip to glue and taper the hollow sheath ends.
Semi-meltable ends (e.g. BW Canyon Pro): same as for non-meltable, except tape can be used instead of seam grip, and the ends melted and tapered.
Note on melting/tapering: Leather gloves work well to shape heat-softened material.
