The act of grabbing the blade of a sword, usually a long sword, in close quarters combat. Seen a lot in the movie Ironclad. Since a broad or long sword is not made to be razor sharp, pinching the blade a specific way allows you grab the blade without cutting your hand. It is also used as a way to disarm an oppenent who is not expecting you to gsrab their sword or has just been wounded.
