Weapons in Genshin Impact are far more than their base stats and buffs. They are all about who wields them. While a sword may have a great ATK power, its secondary abilities may not make it the best choice for any given character in Genshin Impact.

That said, some Genshin Impact swords are just better than others, working well for a variety of users. Keep in mind that this list is in no particular order.
