Double bladed and single, no dual wield. If you want to dual wield role a sentinel or marauder.

The wielding breakdown is like this:

Guardian/Juggernaugt: Single lightsabre only, shield/power generator in the offhand.
Sentinel/Marauder: Single lightsabre in the main hand with something else in the offhand (or a spare hand to fix your hair in mid-fight), or Dual wield with a main hand sabre and an offhand sabre.
Shadow/Assassin: Single lightsabre in the main hand with something else in the offhand (or a spare hand to fix your hair in mid-fight), or Double-bladed Lightsabre with a Shield/Power Generator in the offhand although I am sure I have seen some Sins using a Force Focus for DPS purposes.
Sage/Sorcerer: Single lightsabre only, with a Force Focus in the offhand.
No, really! I am telling the truth, honestly! Look I can prove it, I am a politician! I am as honest as the day is long!
Besides, I am a terrible liar, everyone can see when I am lying - my lips are moving... oh damn, err, that last comment was off the record, right?

As a shadow/assassin, a double-bladed saber is your only (viable) choice. As far as I'm aware of, the saber charges only work with a double-bladed saber.

some skills need double, but doublebladed has more dmg base (not force power, or any other stat, so sorcerers not affected)

You "learn" to dual wield by selecting the proper advance class. You missed the opportunity when you selected Shadow.
