    Swords never reached a height of 7 feet, the torque created by a long sword on a wrist can make a sword of 2 pounds feel around ten or more during a swing. If you want a good Nodachi sword, the longest you can find is 61 to 68(VERY RARE). Ive seen monstrosities created by idiots that lacked any quality. Heres a Nodachi that i believe to be mediocre, Its carbon steel, but if i were you i would refrain from buying it, they dont list numbers on the steel hardness. http://www.musashiswords.com/shop/product.php?prod...

    There are also the Cold Steel Okatanas, those things arent Huge but definatly larger than most, ive had one and it was great. Best of luck on finding a sword.

    You have two choices:

    You can buy a Japanese Nodachi or rather a replica since authentic Nodachi's are pretty rare. Or you can buy a Scottish Claymore. An antique shop or a sword specialty store would be your best bet, although it'll probably cost you an arm and a leg.

    dai-katana or a zweihander.

    I don't know of any place off-hand that sells dai-katanas, and 7 feet is way too long to use practicably for most people.

    try:

    they might make it custom for you or you can try for a zweihander or european style sword:

    Unless it was a parade or ceremonial (non-functional) sword, even the large zweihanders were no longer than 6 feet and weighed around 5 lbs.

    What you're looking for is called either an O-Tachi or O-Katana.

    Google these: Atlanta Cutlery, Museum Replicas, Mantis Swords, e-bogu.

    Trying to compensate for something there are we? ;)

    Don't worry pal... just tell yourself that it's not the size of the sword, it's the skill with which you wield it!
