In this sentence:
He picked up his sword tip to deflect an attack
What is "tip" referring to?
If he needs to deflect an attack, then he will be in need of the whole sword, and not only the tip of it.
May this mean he picks up his sword by the point, and later he grabs it by the hilt to use it. May this make sense?
Any help here, please
