The LENGTH of a sword – Necessary or not?
In the era of the powerful Shogun Japan, was the length of a Katana sword on 68 - 69 cm (27 Inches) prescribed. Only when the power of the samurai gained greater strength, they had looked for much longer blades to use.
The Japanese had earlier average body size of about 165 cm. Nevertheless, with all blade lengths bypass. Also, a samurai of only 160 cm height, used a katana of over 2.6 Shaku length. Why? Because he liked and so well because he could bypass.
That's why we are encouraging clients to make their own "CUSTOM MADE" Swords according to their height.

SHAKU (尺) is the Japanese version of a traditional unit of measure used in East Asia with a length approximately equal to a foot. As with other measurements, it was originally derived from nature: the average length between nodes on bamboo.
