Daggers don’t parry any faster than Mauls do, the animation is just more subtle so maybe it’s taking you more time to spot that a parry has occurred.
And if we’re getting into silly realism talk here heavy two-handers realistically wouldn’t be able to parry a dagger, just as daggers realistically wouldn’t be able to parry heavy two-handers.
Daggers already get the short end of the stick when it comes to parry stamina costs, and frankly I don’t want to hear any more about it unless you seriously want to severely nerf heavy two-hander parry speed as well in pursuit of realistic parrying.
Stop spreading missinformation dude.
dagger parry the fastest, and yes mauls parry the slowest.
So yes, parrying-speed IS weapon sice related!
