Vector Prime is a close second
Really most sword wielding Transformers are awesome.
AOE/TLK Optimus!!!!!♥ He is a true knight who is worthy of a sword
BW Dinobot and G1 Star Saber.
Drift, but not the Bay Movie Drift, the one from IDW.
For me: Grimlock.
Optimus is an axe wielder, Bayverse parting nonsense is soon to rot in the oblivion of being forgotten.
Oh do they have to be official characters? I really like Animated Megatron. Swords don't always look good when they also have to be helicopter blades... or vice versa the helicopter mode doesn't always look good when the blades also have to be a sword. But Megatron looks good in both modes. It's a very clever use of the parts when done right rather than just hiding the sword inside the vehicle.
Maybe it's nostalgia blinding my brain, but Star Saber and Dai Atlas take the cake for me.
RID1 Scourge... though he's not actually any good as a sword user, I just like the character.
Oddly very few sword wielding characters in Transformers actually use their swords properly. They're convincing enough for kids who just expect to see it being swung around but to anyone that's actually practiced sword fighting of any kind there's more to it than just swing it around randomly and hope you hit something.
I think only Drift and Windblade actually look convincing with how they use their swords. Maybe movie Optimus but I never really practiced with a broad sword so I'm not as familiar with that style.
Bludgeon for me as well - but only really due to the Marvel comics.
Dinobot and Grimlock
And by sword I mean random ass thing.
Star saber, dinobot and drift.
Grimlock for the Autobots, Animated Megatron and Bludgeon for the Decepticons
