I found out im unable to equip another weapon in my off-hand with the war pick equipped. I can equip a torch or a shield though. And that finally caused the spear not to show up.

Is there a list of one-handed weapons that won't allow an off- hand to be equipped or is this a bug?

Without the dual-wielding feat, both weapons must have the 'light' property, e.g. two shortswords, two daggers, or a shortsword and a dagger. With the dual-wield feat (you can get it at 4th if you are so inclined) that requirement is removed, so two rapiers etc. become possible.
