And?Same goes with swords.It is MUCH harder to fight with sword one-handed,if you were used to use both hands...ANd becouse Mihawk is the best swordman,I dont think he would be fighting with someone more than neccessary if that someone wouldnt be swordman too...
It is shown with Don Creek arc:against random pirates and warships,he just used his powers without interest,but actually in fight with Zorro,he took his time,and seemed to enjoyed it(although Zorro skills were far under Mihawk skills....)
So if Shanks wasnt swordsman,I dont think Mihawk would even mention he has no interest to fight him,when he got just one arm...
