Are you sure about shortening? 80 cm is 32 inches: a standard length of the blade or even on the longish side! Most are 30-31".
My Circassian is 29", Georgian 30", Chechen 30.5" and even 2 Central Asian are 32 and 28".
If the blade was cut, it must have been monstrously long and unwieldy.... Strange.... And yet, it looks this way: fullers usually stop 2-4 inches short of the point...
