Despite the WA casting time being longer, costing more, and the name being different the only real difference is about it is seeming to have a radius bigger if you had +1 somber upgrade or a +3 smithing upgrade. As a base I used a +0 weapon and a +6 weapon to check radii. I compared this GS at +5 with a +6 Meteoric Ore Blade, a +15 Brick Hammer with Gravitas, and a +5 Starscourge GSs. Radius on the hammer and Ore Blade were identical as they should be since +15 and +6 are comparable in ratio 15/25 and 6/10. The radius on the GS was only slightly larger but the casting time was significantly longer. By comparison the casting time on the Starscourge GSs has a shorter casting time and a follow up attack. Maybe, just maybe, the radius scales as you upgrade and isn't just a flat boost, but the difference is so minor between the weapons it was barely noticeable. Honestly just use two Meteoric Ore Blades and you'll have some more success dragging people in for aggression and roll catching and the only reason I say that is because no other katana scales with Str and Int.
