So an armed parry would not have to be chosen beforehand, and would not suffe a -1 penalty. But it would never happen on a retreating parry (making it less likely for fencing weapons, witch is fitting IMO).

On a success you get a free hit, but you still take location penalties, and you deal thrust-4 damage... this is independent on weapon type, but can be cut or impaling if you want to and the weapon is normally able to do those.
Sounds about right

I did just normal thrust damage today and even that stopped the Knight rolling 3d+8 damage which would have possibly killed a monster biting... with a parry!
