    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for the reply. Would you say tenouchi would be easier with a tsuka that's too thick for small hands or a thinner tsuka for someone with bigger hands?

    Thank you. So, what you guys are saying is that it "would" be possbile to just rewrap the loose end, but it would be very hard and very time consuming?
