i wanted to know if in a daisho both the daito and shoto had a fuchi and kashira set of the same size or was always smaller or bigger than the other one?

and what would be the most common dimensions for a set in japan? i'm wondering because chinese made sets are sometimes larger than the japanese made ones to accomodate western people but of course the reason of this question is to get the more accurate feel possible to a professionally japanese made tsuka and fittings.

only a hypothetic question

thank you
