    Sweeping edge is really only good for farms and dealing with large hordes of slow mobs. Swords are quite a bit stronger than axes in combat situations, as it has more reach and a 50% higher attack rate. In regular pve, usually the axe is good enough. But in tougher combat situations, such as fighting a raid, wither, or another player, swords are still the better option.

    Maybe swords could deal more sweeping damage than axes.

    swords have historically been anti personnel weapons they should do less damage to armored opponents  and more to unarmored opponents more so than is already the case.
