Sefer Torah Line Sizes

What are the line sizes for each Yeriah of a Sefer Torah?

I was looking at a store and all the information they gave was only the length of the Yeriah.

  1. Matters which size yeriah... the 48cm is 8mm lines and the 42cm is 7.5mm lines, the 36cm is about the same as a 15cm mezuzah line and the 30cm is about the same as a shel rosh line.

    1. Is there any Yeriah size that has lines for 10mm? Or is that not common since it makes the Sefer a lot heavier?

  2. The larger yeriah is 50cm usually only used for sfardi sefer torahs. I dont think it would be 10mm though... and 10mm is a very large ksav, no?

    1. Yes it is a large ktav, I use 10 mm as the size i normally write, so I was wondering if there would be such a size.

      Thanks for the information!
