Oar length question

I'm having a brain fart, happens at my age a lot. When talking oar length are we talking handle to end of blade or just the shaft.

I’ll just add you need to do overall length since a 10’ shaft from different manufacturers is different lengths. A Sawyer blade is 30” and a Cataract is 27”, so their 10’ shaft is different.
