personally I prefer the Axes with 6 stats, but that's because I love the way they look more than anything else related to game balance or possible 'min/max' potential.
From what I am seeing however, you can NEVER craft a weapon that will be as good as a real good act 3/4 inferno drop. The reason being that the items you can craft are item level 62 where as the highest that can drop are item level 63 and they have a higher base damage, which means % modifiers are much better on them if they have a high base damage (having a ilvl 63 Arch Axe spawn with perfect DPS stats, but a low base damage for it to modify from will result in it possibly being beaten by a ilvl 62 axe, I can't remember it's exact name, if you get what I mean).
The weapons you can make can indeed spawn with over 1k DPS for the 1 handers however which is good enough no doubt, but I'm unsure if they can spawn with over 1.1k or whatever it is (not done the math and not going to, just throwing numbers out there so your aware of crafted items limits).
I think the craghammer with 280ish dps and 1.30 atk spd is the best 1hander to craft if you look at balance between dmg and atk spd. You should buy the exalted grand plan if you are planning on crafting them. The galraki is probably the next best choice, around 40 lower dps but 0.10 more atk spd I think.
