Everyone uses their edge to displace cuts. However, in the video the guy doing the techniques is not attempting to displace his adversary's cuts, rather he is just doing a hard stop - a hard edge hack. Note that he is not cutting into the side of the blade to displace the cut and then cutting to the other side of the blade in response to pressure of the bind. Instead he is cutting into the direct path of the blade making a hard stop, which would quickly ruin a thin sharp edge. I think part of the problem in the video is that the guy is so focused on doing the technique that when binding he is already moving to his hilt to his left. But overall, it is a nice video.
