Re: chisa katana vs kokatana

That's an interesting concept, that the terms may be relative to the user versus a standard determining length. I'm 5' 6" and have somewhat short arms, so an ideal katana length would probably be shorter for me than for most others (overall wingspan is 5' 3" and each of my arms is about 2').

So, one thing I was getting to was the ideal length of a sword for me and what a standard katana (perhaps 29' blade) would be regarded as if I were to use one.

I've been playing with some original nito ryu techniques and ideas and instead of using a katana and wakizashi, I was thinking about using something in-between in both hands.

So, any information that you guys can give me would be appreciated. : )
