sorry for the retardation of my question...

-i was completely absent minded at the time and didn't state that i ment of "masamune" quality (please dont say something like thats impossible, it's just a refernce)

-- the reason i want a sword of that length is that its a gift for my big brother= he's 7' 3", 300 pounds so holding a normal sized katana makes him look rediculus but he seriously wants one and he deserves it so i'm trying to find somthing his size he can swing at the bamboo around his house.

- i'm also sorry i put the total length instead of the blade length; the blade length of the replica is 50" of 68"

sorry 4 any trouble i cause with my a.d.d. state of mind- reading my message i feel stupid (don't agree with that last part)

This isn't really the proper forum if you are searching for anime/manga/video game related replicas. You would be better off searching a forum dedicated to that kind of stuff and not a martial arts related forum.

If you're brother were to walk into our dojo, I imagine he would eventually be asked to order something in the range of a 2-7-0, which is about a 34 inch blade with somehting in the neighborhood of an 11 inch tsuka. That length of blade would be proportional to his height based on the stylistic preferences of Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu.

The style is called Odachi, temple sword. The only such blades of that length (or longer) were forged for dedication to a temple as an offering to the heavens and as a display of the smith's skill. A katana of that length is not wide enough to support the stresses of the blade, turning an already fragile weapon (due to the differential temper) into a useless one.



Hey Ben,
That's not entirely true. However, I know of only one school that still teaches the use of very long swords, and it is almost to the point of dying out itself. Please see this link for more information on the Kage ryu ... http://www.hyoho.com/Nkage1.html

The picture comparing the swords used in the school to an ordinary sized katana is pretty impressive!
