No he's not.

If you're committing an item slot to 20 ad and 18% crit chance just specifically to deal with Swain then so be it.

You're significantly gimping yourself in damage output/survivability versus every Not-Swain memeber of Swain's team (unless it consists of Mundo, Volibear, Soraka and some other healing nerd).

That's the opportunity cost of having that permanent grievous wounds.

Yeah because an item with a small amount of crit strike and a small amount of damage with no lifesteal is totally viable on tons of champions.

It'd be viable on an AD Carry if it didn't take up a slot with stats that don't synergize well with damage.

You need as much of five stats as possible as an AD Carry.

Attack Damage
Attack Speed
Critical Strike
Lifesteal
Armor Penetration.

You cannot substitute Wicked Hatchet for anything in an AD carry build without losing way too much of something much more important. Or you can get it as a sixth item and not build a GA / QSS / BV, but you're just asking to lose the game to one critical mistake if you do that.

You cannot build it on AP carries for obvious reasons.
You will not be building it on supports.

So who can you build it on? AD Bruisers? Sure, but bruisers are trying to dive and stick to the AD carry, primarily. That's not going to affect Swain.

If the item had lifesteal as well then it would be a great replacement for BT in certain situations where you have to deal with a Swain / Fiora / Volibear / Mundo. You'd be sacrificing 40~80 AD for a smaller amount of additional crit strike and an awesome passive that'll ruin those champions' day. But without lifesteal you simply cannot use it to replace BT, and there are not enough slots in your inventory to make it a mid-game item while holding onto a vamp scepter as well.

Yeah I took a second look at its other stats. Nevermind, birdman is good.

If someone took Swain, Mundo, Fiora or Volibear top, however, I would buy this item on a bruiser for lane phase and keep it until I traded it in for a situational sixth. It might delay my other items but it could be worth it.

Very rarely.
