The reason they are not allowed is because we tried exactly this type of weapon way back in the 80s, and it broke the game. They're not going to come back. If you want something double-ended, make a staff. If you want to break shields, make a glaive. You can't have both without making a wreck of game balance.

Been there, done it, finally got over the nightmares, and now it's your fault that they're going to come back.
You can have both, but sometimes they are both hard to carry at the same time

BACK TO MY WEAPONS RESEARCH AND TEA! HAHA TEA!but first we say a few words...


oh mighty spike-tailed glaive...
ashes to ashes, dust to dust,

make a dagger with both ends looking the same, and you will have a 50% chance of being slightly safer
