The next parry we’re taught is for the outside. When you see this attack, you are told to first break measure slightly. I interpret this to mean a small gathering step.
The parry itself is much like the parry for quarta. Again you lay the sword across the opponent’s blade such that your body structure, and the weight of the sword, are enough to drive his point off-line.
Looking closely at the illustration, we see that the true edge is turned slightly to the left. As with the previous parry, I believe this is to keep the pommel better aligned with the arm.
As soon as the initial attack fails and the opponent begins to recover from his lunge, thrust in third over his arm as per figure 9.
