But a dagger blade IS designed to strike an opponent. I don't think there 
is any rule to keep me from parrying someone's wrist or arm with the edge 
of my rapier or dagger. And maybe getting a cut on them in the process. So 
long as I do not chop them while landing that blade I should be legal.

But I like Senan's answer better. ;-)
