Ah, you might be saying that because of the photos? It just LOOKS gigantic in the photo because I'm holding it with my arms out-streched in front of me, so it's closer to the camera. It's actually the perfect size. I think it is pretty similar to the size of the actual in-game sword relative to the player's body.
If you try to make it and still think otherwise, then of course you could just tweak my template to suit your needs.
