lit. "forehand cleaving blow", Fiore says: these strike from the teeth to the knee, leaving a bloody trail. So, the path of the cut is from jaw to knee- this is true on the target but also on yourself- if you strike from posta di donna to dente di zenghiaro, you are throwing the sword from around your jaw to around your knee.
