Keyboard size of MBP 13 and 15 in?

I have been using a 13in MBP for more than one and a half years now. Since my work involves a lot of typing during this time I used to type away for at times several hours on the machine.
However, after the first six months or so, my left wrist started to hurt. I realized that this had to do with the posture I was adopting because of the relatively cramped keyboard (I am 6 ft and have big hands).
My temporary solution was to get an external bluetooth keyboard and monitor. Since then things are somewhat better.
I have generally been wondering since then as to whether it makes sense to shift over to the MBP 15in? While I have not had a chance to measure the length of its keyboard, I assume that it is somewhat bigger than what Apple provide on the 13incher?
I did ask a friend who said that he had seen a 15in MBP but it has the same keyboard size as the 13in!
So, I am unsure if shifting over to a 15in MBP simply for the ease of typing makes sense. Can someone shed light on this?
