Quite possibly one of the most chosen early weapons, because end game dual swords deal incredibly fast damage. The problem is early game, the lack of sharpness and the lack of skills to fix it make these horrible to start with. However, get the right armor skills, enough combination ingredients, and you can become a "pro" like those on easy mode PSP versions: chainstuns and demonize 24/7
