I should also add I'm not sure about the lengths.

I doubt that you will need a scabbard (?) At least, we don't use them in my dojo. If you are fairly tall/big, you probably want to go with a longer, heavier bokken. Another nice thing about Kingfisher bokkens is the handle (tsuka) is long enough to give your hands plenty of room. The extra length also gives extra leverage when you go to strike.
