Why didn't this runeword work?

I’m pretty sure this is a bug. While playing D2R today, I attempted to craft the “Steel” runeword by placing “Tir” and “El” runes in that order into a superior 2 socketed cudgel. It didn’t work. The Arreat Summit runeword list says any 2 socketed sword/axe/mace. This same runeword did work on my Flail about a week earlier. I have a screenshot comparing the two. Very strange.

This post by Nortrom2010 on the Diablo II sub-reddit explains why it didn’t work…

Not a bug, most likely.
