Nodachi/Odachi swords are large, very large two-handed sword which devastate any enemy near the warrior using it. Nodachi have the same general appearance and design of a tachi though they are significantly longer. The nodachi was carried by foot soldiers and was designed as a weapon for war versus cavalry and open field engagements. Nodachi were generally used on open battlefields as their length made their use indoors or close quarters difficult.
Over-length: loss prof. indoors and close quarters.
