* This is not something that one would aim to do in real fencing, however. One parries with the flat of the blade, since the sharp edge would get damaged from the strike, and there's no chance that either side will try to lean one another down; instant counterattack is the only rational response. One of the most common ones is to strike back with the sword's pommel, while still holding the parry with the blade, but there are numerous variations.
** Use of the edge or flat in a parry is a matter of some ongoing debate, as most fechtbuchen specify when to parry with the flat suggesting this is ''not'' the standard approach. Further, practical testing shows parrying with your flat actually makes you WEAKER in the bind. Now, parrying to your ''opponent's'' flat with your edge provides quite an advantage of leverage in the bind...
** Others in this debate make a distinction between parrying edge-on-edge versus edge-on-flat, with the former being what most have in mind when discouraging the use of edge parries.


Added DiffLines:

** The main reason that this technique (called "binding") works is due to the edges in both swords ever so slightly "biting" into one-another, allowing leverage in directions other than forwards.
** There are some times where the historical sources advocate parrying with the flat (rather than the edge), however these are usually more deflecting than stopping actions, and don't involve much bind-work

** In Season 4 after Jaime has his sword hand amputated, he gets a magnificent gilded-steel hand to replace it and trains with sellsword Bronn in fighting with his left hand. [[spoiler: Jaime regularly gets his ass kicked, but at one point he catches Bronn's blade in his own and grins, thinking he's finally got the advantage. Bronn reaches down, twists off Jaime's fake hand and smacks him in the face with it.]]
