While all poniards are capable of fast stabbing attacks with their venom coated blades, the extra strength of a steel poniard means that it can also be used to parry the attacks of enemies.
Using a poniard to parry requires more skill than a shield, but if successful such a parry will leave the enemy open for counter attack. Poniards are the off-hand weapon of choice in Zingaran duels for exactly this reason.
