The rule for DKs doing DW is two Slow Weapons, however, there are few slow Tanking Weapons.

Some DW Tanks use 2 tanking weapons, some use 2 slow dps weapons.

2H and DW are both viable options for a Frost Tank. A 2H Frost Tank has a few more points to play with though, because they don't need to use points for the DW specific talents.

I use two slow weapons ( The Grinder [10 Anub], and Nighttime [Heroic FoS])
though I've got a Peacekeeper blade for fights that require more survival or effective health.

The DW 2-dps weapons is easily the best threat I've found and with the nerubian carapace chants, it's still very good defensively. I don't miss my 1h tanking weapons at all.
