#4 Nine-inch sword - my great aunt has one of those, her brother brought it back from the war as a keepsake. I think they're called kaiken? It's a lady's toy, small enough to be stuck in the back of an obi - even wakazashi are longer.

#5 Sounds like my letter opener. If he's being an ass, sure, but sword? A-team writing for other projects then?

#6 An 'Arkansas Toothpick' was a bit longer (12" to 19".

It still wasn't classified a 'sword', only a dagger.
