Default Tulwar Durability

Hello Lads,

I was examining my tulwars today and thought about the durability of the hilts. There are no rivets and the blade is held by resin, Seems to me that it would fail after extensive combat?

Also, why are they made so uncomfortable? perhaps there is a style which makes use of the disk pommel but to me it looks more of a hinderance rather then anything else.

Its strange considering the military history of that part of the world.
