its cotton, which to be honest feels better in the hand than the leather, more grip

Aye, I find that the slick leather itos aren't as grippy, don't feel as secure in your hand there's a kind of fibre leather on the tori xl and that's much better. Be careful you don't polish the etched hamon out, that metal polish that mick uses can buff out the patterns on Damascus steel lol.

oh i dont touch the hamon at all with the metal polish, i follow the pattern just in case anything did happen to it lol, so now at least i know it would have destroyed it if i had, phew

It would take a fair bit of vigorous polishing, but it would eventually fade it out
