Similar to the question Does the Larder Door work with the Two Weapon Style talent?, I was wondering if the One-Handed Style talent bonus still applies when you have a shield equipped in the other hand?

The text of One-Handed Style reads:

While wielding a single one-handed melee weapon, 20% of the attacker's Grazes are converted to Hits.


No. There is a seperate One Hand + Shield style which provides a bonus to defense.

    It would have been nice if the in-game description was clearer in that regard, because if I equip a sword in one hand and a shield in the other, technically I'm still wielding a one-handed melee weapon :P – DarthPizza Apr 15 '15 at 12:26

Yes, one-handed style and weapon and shield style stack together, as demonstrated by a graze being converted to a hit in this screenshot:
