    A six foot long sword is a bit much, even with the curve.
    Since if a sword gets too long, it can't support its own weight. o.O

    thats the glory of japanese katana's
    its true that most swords would be almost impossible to control if its over 6 feet, but the way the japanese makes there swords, it yeilds a much lighter sword resulting in longer weapons. And have you ever seen the sword the japanese use for rituals? if you have thats an odachi

    Katannas are not light. o.O
    They aren't very heavy, but they are not light.

    they are light for their size, and the longer the blade the larger the size to weight ratio
