    The answer ?
    Statistically speaking... the axe !!!
    Now in practice it is a lot easier to chain hits and get crits with the sword...
    Here is the accumulated damage over time:
    (there are 100 data points per line, one every 0.05 seconds, this is a graph of the first 5 seconds)
    stats.png
    graph1.png
    In the graph, 0.400 corresponds to 40 HP or 20 hearts. Multiply the damage by 100 to have the correct value :/

    The way to read this graph:
    You follow a line of the weapon you want to compare until you reach a spike (a strike at 100%)
    Imagine a vertical line at that point.
    compare the damage with the last strikes of the other weapons behind that vertical line.
    Example (here of the iron axe):
    statsexample.png

    This is for people clicking at regular intervals, clicking as soon as the weapon is charged at 100%

    This was based off the data of the weapon damage and the time it takes to achieve 100% from this wiki page :
    http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Damage

    Technical stuff :
    For each point I multiplied the % of damage at a the time in $C17 by the damage of the item in D$3
    =$C17*D$3
    I then used an if function on the table : if(condition; if true; if false)
    =IF(AT12=1;$D12;IF(AT12+$C12>1;1;AT12+$C12))
    AKA : "If the value in the precedent cell is equal to 1 (100%) then check if, when increased by the increment of damage/time between the two cells, the percentage is superior to 100% if it is, input 100% if it is not, input increased %. If the value in the precedent cell is not equal to 1 input increased %"
    Basically when the weapon reaches 100% it restarts the % at the original starting % at the beginning of a hit.

    I then multiplied the damage of the weapon by the calculated % per time and added it to the orginal.
    I made a third table with the accumelated damage which is just cells with an addition formula.
    ex: =E69+F41

    Guys please read the post and the comments entirely before posting and don't assume you understand the graph.
