it's been argued may times now, always ending in a stalemate.
but my vote goes to onehanded with shield, hands down.
for the small amount of reduced damage, i gain higher blocking, armor and 20 points in an attribute or skill (shield with 4 charm slots and gold charms). and this doesn't even count the attributes inherently attached to the shield to begin with (resists, attributes, skills).
