Skorn would probably increase your DPS on paper, but without a lot of IAS, it's hard to turn that paper DPS into effective DPS. Skorn requires a lot of IAS for performance with WWDT builds, whereas two 1-handers does not require as much and is initially cheaper to build a WWDT build with.
If you'd like to use a Skorn, I'd suggest a HOTA/Rend build with high CC and CD, and then lastly build up your IAS. Rend doesn't need IAS (it ignores your IAS completely), only HOTA does to improve performance. If you'd like to continue WWing, I suggest sticking with two 1-handers for now because with dual-wielding it's easier to maintain permawrath and generate fury with while on a monetary budget.
There are tons of searchable threads on the forums about both builds.

Skorn is simply not for a traditional WW build. What a Skorn excels at is massive single target DPS and monster crits. They are ideal for ubers in that regard and you'd be hard pressed to find a DT/WW barb that can down ubers faster than a properly geared Skorn wielding HoTA/Rend barb. That is not to say they won't work well for regular farming however either. For XP farming on lower MP, using cleave with rupture rune can obliterate entire trash mobs with one or 2 swings and using SS has the same effect and returns you a ton of fury and can be spammed if you use the strength from earth rune.
Forget about breakpoints with a Skorn you simply are not going to hit the higher end BP's to worry about it. That doesn't mean you can't perma wrath though on ubers and farming. It just requires a little more thought and care. For instance I can maintain wrath no problem in farming and in ubers at my 1.48 APS. As long as you can get yourself to about 1.3 APS using HoTA as a fury dump works rather well to maintain wrath.
It's a matter of play style and preference. Both can be very effective but both are very expensive in the higher end. You have to decide what direction you want to take and then plan your build accordingly.
