Why always show both hands?

Short answer: out of respect.

If anybody intends to do harm to somebody else, the greeting is a moment of proximity. By greeting somebody one puts oneself in a place where protection is down for a moment. Often the hands deliver the danger, so if a person shows both hands during the greeting process, he shows that he intends no harm.

This is an old habit from times, when people caused much more harm to each other in person than nowadays. Presently there is no way of showing ones intention while greeting in such a striking manner, so it remains a token of respect and peace.
