average sword size. In fact it is very large and will require two hands to use. Nodachi swords as can

be seen on this site, has the same general appearance as that of a tachi. They also have the same

design except in this case the Nodachi is significantly longer. Foot soldiers carry this sword during

open field engagements. This weapon is not conducive to use indoors or at close quarters. Although

this was a powerful weapon it has its limitations because it is more than a normal size sword.

It will require a great amount of strength from an extra ordinary soldier to be able to wield this

sword properly. This is why some weapons like the Naginata and Nagamaki are thought to be more

effective when use in the battlefield. However, it is not a weapon to toy with since legend states that

it can cleave a warrior and his horse in half by just a single blow. Nodachi is used to train martial

artists to handle an oversize weapon so that it would be easy for them to handle a normal size one.

The Nodachi replaces the heavy wooden sword use by students of martial arts if they are serious

about their training.
