    I believe it is the point of the sword called the Fioretto. The skmish or duel is conducted with Fioretti pointed.

    Yes it is, but the locution is a paraphrase to intend "hurting (in dispute, speech, act) in a fair, gently manner (using only the tip of the sword and not the whole blade.

    The locution comes from "fioretto" a sword with no sharp blade but with only a pointed tip.
