Axes have less reach than swords and deal less damage, so they just can't keep up in a fight. Sword players are untouchable against axe players.
Of course swords should still be better, as they are intended to be more effective in combat. But the difference right now is too much.
Diamond Axe deals 14 DPS whereas Diamond Swords deal 18 DPS
I think increasing Axes damage +1 can help a little and won't make Axes stronger than swords.
With this change, Diamond Axes will deal 8 damage, which equals 16 DPS, still lower than the sword's, and reach will keep swords stronger.
This won't fix the underpowered Axe problem, but at least it's something. To fix this, the reach difference should be less, like 0.25 instead of 0.5, but I've already made a post about it.
