It's all down to your preference, I for one combo better with swords and I just do better with it.
PS: I've bought and used a lot of weapons over the years I played ko. cursed+8/ high+9 also had the pleasure of using 10s. Just buy whatever you feel comfortable using with your combo. Don't get nothing else but Chaos! Not even hb+9.. not worth it.
Hope I helped. =)
