to betroth
The chivalrous knight was about to cut his ear off, to show he was earnest the he wanted to betroth her. Fortunately, a pin thrown by the dwarf hit the sword before he could do it (he was hammering something nearby, and as he saw what was about to happen, he intervened - as he didn't want him to lose his ear).
