Has anyone else found one of these?

I have been trawling YJA for an obijime colour I don't have, and came across furisode obijime which are 215cm long! I can only guess this extra length is useful for tying fancy knots, but none I already own are that length.

Does anyone have these in their collection?

I got a extra long flat obi-jime I think it is almost 2m - you can do a lot of nice knots with them. If I remember correctly I bought it a while ago for Ryu...
