This weapon looks as two
scimitars joined at the handle, with curved blades pointing in the same direction.
The handle is long enough for the weapon to be wielded with either one or two
After the invention of
two-bladed swords and axes, sooner or later a weaponsmith was bound to come
up with the idea of two-bladed scimitars. So far dozens of blacksmiths the world
over have attempted to take credit for the design; Ambricus is not foolish enough
to think he can get away with that credit, so he does not try. However, he knows
the design occurred to him by itself, having never seen another two-bladed scimitar
in his life. The likeliest hypothesis is obviously that two-bladed scimitars
generated in some harsh desert environment, where scimitars and similar weapons
are more common and creative ways to kill are a daily need.
A two-bladed scimitar is
a double weapon; a character may use it as if fighting with two weapons, though
doing so incurs all the normal attack penalties associated with fighting with
two weapons, just as if the character was wielding a one-handed weapon and a
light weapon. A character wielding a two-bladed scimitar in one hand cannot
use it as a double weapon; only one end of the weapon can be used in any given
round. Other than this, the weapon functions exactly as a normal Scimitar.
