I guess I just don't see it happening. Stabbing downward with the dagger as the two are held in that manner really seems to preclude that hand blocking with the buckler. The reverse also seems to be true, try it.

On the other hand, you can block all day with that buckler, holding a thin-handled blade and not have problems. Same thing with ice-pick stab with the dagger. I don't think the combination shifts the center of mass more than a few percent.
