I have been asked to play a herald in a community theatre group's production of "The Three Musketeers" and have been asked to have, as part of my uniform, a rapier (toy of course), however when looking at rapiers in current ceremonial use (for instance the Swiss Guard) I cannot help but notice they all seem to different lengths in relation to the person's height, therefore would like to know "As a percentage of a person's height, how long should my rapier be?"
