The quality of the swords made back then must not have been very good. Either that or the dagger wielder was pretty strong, LOL>

 

You would think the leverage of the sword would break the sword breaker first.

I'd guess it's more about catching and controlling the opponent's blade than breaking it.

 

 

That's probably more than likely the case. Catch opponents sword and make killing blow with other weapon.

I believe this is the consensus of people who actually experiment with these kinds of things.

One of a class of off handed daggers called "parrying daggers".   Used in conjunction with a one handed sword, such as a rapier.  As said above, intended to catch and control your attacker's primary sword.
