Default Re: Can you Parry a Bear?

FWIW, weapons (even well made ones) can and do break when parrying (even in sparring and stage combat). I have personally seen it happen three times. This "your grip is the weak part of the system and will always break first" idea doesn't really match reality, presumably because the forces involved aren't all equivalent.
