Double Strike was not the only attack Fammal mastered during his years in the arenas. He also perfected the technique of the Dual Strike, and used it to decimate countless opponents. Those who follow in his footsteps seek to duplicate the art, and at high levels of skill, a few manage. Dual Strike lashes out at a single target with tremendous force, slicing or smashing it with both weapons simultaneously. When executed by a master swordsman, just one Dual Strike is often enough to end the battle.

Description on the official Path of Exile website [1]

Dual Strike is an attack skill. It attacks an enemy with both weapons, and thus works only while dual wielding.
