It's Yunlong, thanks for using this!
Also works with daggers (a lot easier, I find).
I've found it only works when the Satyr has a knife. I'm not sure if it works with weapons other than the large axe, though
Yunlong here again, this works only when a satyr is carrying a dagger type weapon and only if you are carrying a dagger type weapon or large axe. You have to be sideways and in your attack position, I don't think it will work if your weapons are down. I have not tested with maces or clubs, but I know for sure that mino axe will not work for this trick.
