Default 1 FT wiper blades?

My Honda HRV instruction book describes in detail with pictures how easy it is to replace the rear screen wiper blade rubber without having to buy the whole rear wiper assembly arm

Unfortunately so far i have been unable to find a windscreen wiper blade anywhere that is 1ft (30 cms ) long

There are some pretty small motors driving around Portugal, those little two seat cars Aixam (spelling) spring to mind, what size blades do they use?

Anyone know where i can get a 1ft wiper blade?

Probably the easiest way is to use Amazon or E-Bay

Thanks Canoe
I wondered what Portuguese owners of HRVs did in this situation so joined the HRV owners group Portugal the vast majority of whom just buy a standard blade from a supermarket and cut to size........the Honda item is 20+ euros

Update
In the end following advice from members of the HRV Portugal forum i bought a single 35cm blade from Intermarche for 4.99 and cut to size, easy peasy........if it lasts a year at that price i`m happy.
I count myself lucky that the rear wiper on a Honda HRV isn`t a fancy model specific job.
