I agree with people who refer to this as a balanced weapon. I love it for its aesthetic purposes, albeit I agree that it looks more like an extended Kama or pick, but it's being able to pull out the second ice scythe and stalk around menacingly. I speak merely from a PVE perspective, but I use it on a character that I have pretty much balanced stats on. I like to be able to change up my play style at a whim based on my moods, and it is an excellent weapon for a build like that.
Overall I am pretty pleased with it.
