There is no good way to have what the book calls a scimitar that is a light weapon. Burning feats or taking −2 attack penalties for wielding an undersized scimitar are ridiculously painful for something that should be very simple. Instead, take the stats of a kukri, call it a “light scimitar,” and you’re good to go.1 The rules of the game never define ...

You can craft a Small Scimitar, if you really want to use a light scimitar instead of a kukri for instance. That way the weapon is small for your character, but would be medium for a halfling, yet still fully qualifying for feats and two-weapon fighting. Let me add that your damage dice will go one step down though, from D6 to D4. Also, as @I Can Chan ...

I've always understood that a double weapon used with two hands are actually two weapons, like when your character uses a sword and a dagger or a couple of scimitars. When you use the weapon with a single hand means that the usage is restricted, so you must count it as a single weapon and also you can apply only part of the character strength.

This dates from 3.5e (or earlier?) - the quote below is from the d20 SRD, and is the same in the PF SRD. Double Weapons Dire flails, dwarven urgroshes, gnome hooked hammers, orc double axes, quarterstaffs, and two-bladed swords are double weapons. A character can fight with both ends of a double weapon as if fighting with two weapons, but he or she ...

Having done some research, you cannot use a two-handed weapon with one hand, even if it's a double weapon. This question on the Pathfinder FAQ states definitively that you can't use a two-handed weapon in one hand, effectively or not. However, the rules for double weapons apply to exceptions that allow you to use a two-handed weapon with one hand. For ...

The first quote implies that double weapons are all hand-and-a-half weapons, à la the bastard sword, and can be used as one-handed weapons. It does not, however, outright state this, and that is confusing. It does not state that you can ignore the “Two hands are required” clause for two-handed weapons, and double weapons are definitely1 two-handed ...

Technically yes, but when using both ends to TWF, most tables say no A double weapon is a type of two-handed weapon; every double weapon in the game is listed in the appropriate Two-Handed Weapon table. The rules for double weapons state that, when you use both ends of one in conjunction with the Two-Weapon Fighting option, the double weapon is treated as ...

Yes and no. A double weapon takes two hands to use, but only counts as a one-handed and light weapon when you are attacking with both ends. In order to use a double weapon to make a two-handed attack, you have to only use one end at a time: The character can also choose to use a double weapon two-handed, attacking with only one end of it. If you're ...

Bladeshimmer is a Wondrous Item, not a magic oil, and is subject to different rules. Going by the rules on oils in the d20srd, oils are spells in liquid form that you can apply to stuff. This means that when applied to a valid target you get the effect of for example Shillelagh for a duration that matches the spell description. Bladeshimmer, while being ...
