Jakob Sutor, Neu Kunstliches Fechtbuch

Page 8.

The image on the left shows a man in the position called the Glancing Strike: stand in the High or Wrathful Guard with the left foot forward and when your opponent strikes at you, you strike also, but in the motion of the strike, meet his blow with the false edge and hit with free hands on the inside, step with your right foot to his left while simultaneously hitting him on the head.

This is a free schielhau, see Talhoffer tafel 18 and Meyer page 11 for other glancers.
