      That's not dual wielding because you are using 2 different things.

      In theory, it can be quite powerful. In practice, few people achieved the level of skill and training with it where it becomes better than simply using a shield or a parrying dagger.

        >a parrying dagger.
        No no no. Parring dagger is special case for special main weapon. Overly long rapier that has dead zone close so short dagger is to cover that weakness. Sword of perfect length also capable to do good cut doesn't have such dead zone close and doesn't need asymmetric weapon to cover weakness and longer (within perfect length) parrying weapon is preferable because longer blade covers more space and makes parrying easier.
        Biggest problem of dual welding is it requires some amount of ambidextrousness. And most people simply are not born for this.

          Double swords was still rare. Sword+buckler was much more common.

            Like i said
            >it requires some amount of ambidextrousnes
            Advantage of dual welding you can parry and attack at teh same time and unlike with the shield do attacks with both right and left hand. People with strong dominance in one hand fall into pattern: "block with support hand attack with dominant hand". If you do so there is no much sense having second sword in the support hand.

              parry and riposte is faster than parry and offhand.

                It is not. Riposte comes out AFTER parry. Dual welding attack comes AT SAME time as parry. Even more parrying blade maybe used to continue bind and control of the opponents blade when second weapon is free for attack. Riposte unbinds the blade and losses control.

      At least it can survive without a hardware gimmick to carry it. Looking at you Half-Life.

    I've practiced with handguns. It's a lot of fun.

    From a practical standpoint, I've gained significant proficiency with my off hand. Not gonna write home about it, but I could take out an attacker under ~25 yards if my good hand was disabled.

    The difficulty was mostly eye-dominance. By firing each weapon alternately, I forced myself to change eye dominance for each shot. Yeah, it was miserable accuracy at first, but I took it slow and within 100 rounds or so I wasn't doing too bad. After about 300 rounds I sped it up a fair bit and was still able to keep all shots on the paper.

    This experience made me evaluate how I hold each weapon, how each arm works throughout the shot from draw to finish. It enhanced my awareness of how I use my good hand and improved my scores a bit. Not crazy, but noticeable.

    I'm over 1000 rounds now and it's beginning to feel quite natural. I use all weapons in each hand, revolvers and semi-autos, from .22 through 9mm and up to .357 mag. The difference in recoil ... and how each weapon behaves under recoil ... greatly increased my sensitivity to how each weapon was behaving and allowed my to make adjustments for all of them. It's been an interesting journey, and still a long way to go, but totally worth it. Not a meme, it pays off.

    picrel: original inspiration. I never intended to dual wield. I started out with "Hmmm. Can I do this ambidextrously? Without, y'know, shooting myself in the junk or something?" It was surprisingly easy, then escalated.

    It makes a little more sense when everyone is naked and only the chief is allowed to wear that armor you got off of a bunch of Indians 200 years ago.

    >Does dual wielding make sense for any weapon?
    melee weapons are tertiary in a world of firearms, and on a battlefield formations > solo and missile weapons are still very dangerous. Dual wielding has appeared throughout history but has usually been a dueling anachronism and very uncommon, due to the high skill required.

    Major disadvantage to dual wielding is that turning a shoulder towards the target to increase reach shortens the other arm's reach. You're trading off advantage in one hand for the other.

    Make sense? Sure. Not everything that can "make sense" is perfectly optimal in all situations. If it's a skill you've taken the time to master it could be very jarring for someone who's never fought against two weapons before. If you're armed only with a one handed weapon and you lay hands on a second weapon, it could make sense to utilize even only as an impromptu shield or perhaps to throw and surprise your opponent with your dominant hand's weapon. If you're making do with sub ideal weapons (lets say you just have access to sticks or knives you can conceal) it could be very practical to be able to attack quickly with either hand. Training with two weapons might also have some niche use in case your lead arm is injured, or you get in a grapple.

    Nunchucks and hammers are excellent for duel wielding. Two claw hammers being swung at someone’s head is terrifying.
