According to this, it takes 4 points (+1 for off-hand training perk) to use a buckler and a knife together without penalty.

Not in my opinion

I'd allow to buy off -1 for both Shield and Knife skills via Perk or via Technique for a well-trained character, but I agree at not completely remove the game penalty.

The August 2015 post from PK you've quoted...
Quote:
Kromm has suggested "Extra Arm 1 (No Signature; Weapon Mount)" as a way to simulate a cinematic warrior's ability to hold a ready shield while still retaining full use of that arm.
Extra Arm 1 (Weapon Mount) is normally 2 points, No Sig increases it to 3. Given that, you might even treat "simultaneous wield" as a Very Hard technique defaulting to -2, the first 2 points buying it up to -1 and the 3rd point bringing you to 0.

I'm assuming this refers to how people normally wield the shield in the off hand without penalty but you're buying off the -4 to wield the knife in the off hand?
