Double Plural

There is one double plural that I’ve found in the English language:

‘manservant’ has two plurals, one irregular and the other regular giving us the infrequently used ‘menservants’.

In my humble human opinion, I don’t like that such a word exists, I have issues with servitude.  But linguistically speaking, it’s cool to find a double plural.
