does anyone here use a katana with a smooth hardwood tsuka? I am just asking because i have used a Tai Chi straightsword with a smooth handle and found it to be comfortable. Katana tend to be two-handed weapons, is a rough handle preferable only for 2 handed weapons in your experience? The wrapped same and cotton tsuka is certainly preferable if one values authenticity and tradition, but what advantage does it have?
