Giovanni dall’Agocchie – More on Parries

It is better to parry with the true edge than the false because true edge parries leave the point on-line for a thrust. And whenever you can thrust, the cut is also an option.

Both cuts and thrusts are useful, but thrusts are preferable because, being closer to the enemy, are faster. They are also safer, as the sword is not removed during the attack.
