    Guesstimate from the grass blades ... 3 meters give or take.

    3 meters, so that's like 2 gallons in American units? :biggrin:

    I tried to do the same estimate, but it hurt my head. So I cheated and Googled it. They are almost 10 meters tall (30+ feet).

    Yeah they are big, I was going to say 50ft but 10metres makes them just over 30ft.

    Yes, our meters are bigger ... by several gallons. Perhaps our grass is also bigger.

    Either way bigger is better. Especially when it comes to Norse swords.

    Whoa, these are really cool! Those chips on the blade (especially the right one) give the swords a lot of character :D
