True, I was referring to two similar swords or even the same sword(as the post I originally replied to was referring to Napoleon telling dragoons to thrust with their sword).

Spears have much longer reach and more weight behind them, so yes, you can easily change the direction of the thrust from the foot to the head quite quickly. But with a sword if you thrust to the legs you end up exposing yourself in the process.
