Introduction to Class Swordsman

The Swordsman is a fascinating character in Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds. He can be termed jack of all trades and master of none. He has the combined skills of every class from knockdowns like cc of Destroyer and even high damage output like Rogue and Witch. Swordsman is the best hero if you plan on playing the game solo, as he is self-sufficient in every category, from damage to heals and even buffing himself for extra stats.

Hi, can you recommend the best weapon for the swordsman class? I am thinking if I will get a Milkyway or maybe Chronos blade for my level 80 skill (Unleashed blade)? Thanks in advance.
