Curved swords are generally better at cuts then straight swords. The reason being that you've got a smaller point of contact when the blade lands a cut, so more force is directed to a smaller area. This is also part of why an axe can land a stronger blow then a sword, even though the two weapon could weigh the same (the other reason being center of balance is closer to the axe blade, whereas a sword it's closer to the hilt, making it easier to move around and defend with).
I think the strongest contender for the best chopping sword is probably the Falcatta. It combines the properties of a sword with those of an axe, having a thick blade with the point of contact being a forward-curved blade. It chops into things very, very well, but at the cost of being less wieldly then other swords and thus more difficult to use defensively. It's also impractical to thrust with.

The curve also lets the connecting part of the blade do a sort of "slicing" motion, because most knives/swords/anything cuts better with mixed motion of pushing and sawing.

It was a genius way to make up for their terrible steel quality, the folding as well as the heat treating process. The form of the sword is still genius and when forged with modern steel quality leads to a beautiful weapon. But everything has it's place, which is why they had other weapons to use.

Maybe the steel is "terrible" in some aspects as durability, but the steel can be polished and ground out very fine, I read it is because they used this "iron sand".

Here's a good cross section of something on the left, which would meet modern standards, and the right, which wouldn't. That's why I'm such a fan of the Viking Ulfberht and Damascus, they had modern quality steels hundreds of years before Europe and Japan even had decent stuff.
