A banded scythe is a scythe with metal bands strategically placed on the haft. This allows you to use the haft as a dangerous bludgeoning instrument.
A banded scythe is a double weapon. You can fight with it as if fighting with two weapons, but if you do, you incur all the normal attack penalties associated with fighting with two weapons, just as if you were using a one-handed weapon and a light weapon.
Unlike most double weapons, you cannot use a Banded Scythe in one hand.
