If you are going to use a sword like that, why not Broadsword? It's exactly alike, just more damage, but I'm not sure about the attack animation though, but both are large straight swords.
I don't know in 1.05, but the official guide gives about 120 hit point more to the lighting claymore:
Lightning Broadsword+5: 225 + 229
Lightning Claymore+5: 283 + 288
