Those discussions are great!

My question to Deborah is whether the client REALLY wants to equate their
product to a double-edged/two-edged sword, even though they insist upon the
reference. It doesn't sound like a very technical description of the issue.
It sounds like unless there are particular religious or medieval
relationships that need to be maintained, I would dissuade the client from
that language usage.
