    This is seriously cool. Done from the perspective of Fiore himself, and showing techniques in context.

    Yes, it's quite safe. You can even grab the blade. It is well documented in historical manuals. The following video shows how it is done:

    Glad you folks liked it. I don't do much Fiore, being a die-hard Liechtenauer disciple when it comes to HEMA, but I quite enjoy seeing it nonetheless. I've puttered around with his manual for fun, but I can't claim to do it justice at all. It has a certain fluidity to it that I love.
