Two reasons. One- Weapon Balance: These weapons would be far to unwieldy for someone of even incredible strength. Perhaps allowing an individual of unusual size and strength would be reasonable, but if they are less than 18 inches taller than the blade is long, no way. If you add 1 to the WSB, and square the result, this should make a minimum SB to attempt it.
Two-Game Balance. The skill already sets this balance off by a bit as is. If heavier weapons are allowed, this factor will become extreme.
Three- Why bother? If they have such a high SB, the 1-2 extra points won't make a difference. (this one isn't a reason, so I stand by saying two reasons)
