Two weapons

> As far as I know there is very little evidence of two-weapon use in the
ancient/medieval world--the only example I can think of is Renaissance rapier-duelling (highly stylised).

The other example is samurai swordsmen - IMO again primarily as a duelling skill.

If you're going to provide an edge to this style, there should also be a penalty when under missile fire or fighting as part of a formation.

Are there any mentions of this style in myth or heroic literature?
