By "full attack" do you "with no penalty"? Because you'd need to buy off the penalty for a Dual-Weapon Attack to do that. Ambidexterity would only get rid of the -4 for the off-hand, not the -4 to each attack for doing two at the same time (aka, DWA).

If you have Ambidexterity, two weapons, and want three attacks, you can do it with All-Out Attack (Double), but you'll attack at -4/-4 (the Dual-Weapon Attack, so that's -4 on one hand and -4 on the other) and once at -0 with either of them (or some other strike if you choose). Someone who bought off the DWA penalty with the Dual-Weapon Attack technique could potentially attack 3 times at -0/-0 and -0, using one weapon twice during an All-Out Attack.
