To amplify Crandall's second answer a bit, there is currently only one
authorization in heavy combat. But when new weapons are added to the mix,
they are often set up as a add-on authorization. That was true with unpadded
glaves and with 12 foot fiberglass spears. As the general fighting
population understands the benefits and limitations (and risks) of the new
weapon, we remove the special check box.

As you are admitting to being Bjorn's son and
knowing Bjorn from way back, your questions are
not stupid. At least compared to Bjorn. 

1. There is no requirement as to materials. Nor
is it in the rules that it survive combat. 
I would recommend that it survive for that is a
lot of work to have destroyed so quickly. 
The rules (simplified) require that it not have
projections, and that it not damage weapons that
hit it.

2. No
