    In some case you will have edge on edge deflection. Hence the edge vs edge is sometime taken a bit out of proportion or context.

    That being said a dent in your sword is better than a dent in you… We can all take a few punches or kicks, if you are hit with a longsword or even a Messer you are likely to end up in two parts
    Technically, it's nigh impossible to hit the flat of the blade, simply by virtue of the blade not being flat. You are going to hit the bevel. Still, for the sake of the argument, flat is defined as "not-edge", thus you might see swords contacting at 30 degrees or 45 degrees angle instead of a clear 90 degrees. That's hardly detrimental to the weapon, not nearly as bad as a full-on edge-on-edge bash.

    Yeap,
    Even if in certain case like a shiel your edge will be pusing his edge down. there is no full force opposition as teh sword travel more of less the same direction
    I can not believe the amount of time waisted on full force edge to edge block discution.
    Modern science easily demonstrate that I suck structurally
    And the manual clearly show what to when that happens (i.e. the “bad” versetzen) to hit that doing so sucks big time.
    Of course it probably happens as it happens now days when we spare, but really it is a no brainer.
