Hi, my height is 5'1" and I'm worried that I might get a blade that is too long for my height. Could someone help me with this?

My daughter is about your height and she is perfectly comfortable with both 32" and 36" blades, though she prefers the 32" blades for both dueling and spinning.  At your height, 32" should be nearly perfect.

If I may ask, what hilt are you planning to purchase?  Some of them have deeper blade pockets and a 36" is more practical in them even for people of lesser stature.

My daughter is 5'2" and tends to prefer 30 to 32 for spinning but 36 for fighting. It does make a difference how far they insert into the hilt but we always cut our own to specs we want anyway.

At your height, I'd likely stay aroun 28" to 32"
I'm 5' 11" and a 36" seems almost too long

Most of mine are 36" but i think i prefer the 32". I am 5'4". I feel fine with both though. If you do a staff you will want no longer than 32" blades though

IMHO it all depends on what you're planning to do with your saber.
For spinning I'll advice a shorter blade, makes it easier to spin and you don't have to worrie that much about hitting the floor, wich in turn let's you relax your shoulders a bit more. And I think the 32" blades balance out the sabers a bit better for spinning.
For duelling a few extra inch can make the difference between scoring a point (or kill someone).

I'm 6'7"(or Cool, and I use the 32" blades for spinning and the 36" for sparring and form-practice.
