A max damage one. Pretty much any sword can be the best, it just depends on the mods and stuff. Unless you mean by looks, and a lot of people would say fellblade.

One you make yourself... Flamberge is nice skin... IDS/FDS.. Longsword.. Fellblade!
Victos sword has nice skin (forget what non-green is called) Obsidian?

I find that you should have 2 swords to be effective (if your strictly going for dmg)
1 with vamp for dmg and 1 for when your walking around and not fighting!
Just my opinion though...

For Factions I like the ONI sword but have yet to see one in game... -_-

"Best" really depends on what you're trying to accomplish. However, the most common interpretation of "perfect" for swords, at least according to the market, is as follows:

Slashing Dmg: 15-22 (requires 9 Swordsmanship)
Dmg +15% (while health is above 50%)
Armor Penetration 20% (chance: 20%)
Health +30

However, if you're talking about skins, I like these:

http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/Flamberge

And these are expensive/rare skins:

Either be willing to buy one for a cost in the five digits range from someone or assemble the pieces & build it yourself.

First, you'll need the sword itself. In Prophecies, there are no collectors or crafters that can give you a 15% over 50% health inscription on a sword. However, there are two collectors that can give you a +15% damage in a stance inherent. The first is in the Crystal Desert and wants 5 Bleached Carapaces, and the second is in the Southern Shiverpeaks and wants 5 Mountain Troll Tusks. Otherwise, you'll have to wait for one to drop or buy one from another player; either case will require a lot of patience and/or money. If you have the Nightfall campaign or Eye of the North expansion, however, you can just get a max damage (15-22) inscribable weapon and put a "Strength and Honor" inscription on it.

Then you'll need the mods. The mods I listed are a perfect Sundering hilt and a perfect Pommel of Fortitude. However, keep in mind that this isn't always the best sword in the game. If you're using a build that uses a lot of adrenaline, for example, a perfect Furious Hilt may be a better choice. Or, if you're facing lots of warriors who have high armor against physical damage, or if you're using one of the conjure element skills, you'll want one of the elemental hilts. A Fortitude Pommel is generally a good choice, though, as the extra health is quite useful. Pommels of Defense or Mastery can be quite helpful, though, depending on the situation. You'll most likely have to buy most of those from other players. Each piece can be bought from players or salvaged from gold rarity weapons.
