First off, it's true that parents can be stupid... but sometimes they know what they're talking about, and even if they don't, they're just trying to look out for you.
Anyway, yes, 160 centimeters is quite large... that would be about up to my chin, I think. My largest is about up to my belt line, and that's big enough for me... I'm not an exceedingly strong guy.
Thanks for the shopping trip, but unfortunately I don't foresee a trip to Norway anytime in the near future. I'll just stick to ordering offline, and there's also a sword store at a shopping mall near my town. If I'm lucky, I might even get a chance to go to the Great Lakes Medieval Faire that's going on through this month and part of next... there should be a lot of neat stuff there, as well.

I believe this is called an epee or a foil... I'm not sure which name is appropriate, because I don't know the difference between the two.
