I am not sure about in 1st person & I guess it would be much better in 1PV, but is it possible to block based on when you hear the grunt in 3rd person view?
I generally find it easier to do that if you stand against medium/low speed weapons. But when I fight those fast weapons like rapier/messer, I find it is impossible if you fight in a very close range, for how many times I block right after the grunt and I still get hit even opponents don’t accel. I feel the only way to counter that is to stay in a certain range. :/

don't rely on the grunt, but the human mind reacts quicker to sound impulse than visual impulse, so it can be useful in some circumstances.

If you attempt to react based on the grunt, you are going to get hit. Latency + accels mean that you can't rely on it at all.

If you attempt to react based on visuals, you are going to get hit. Latency + accels means animations are unreadable.

The takeaway from all this is that you should just gamble everything.
