Default Cutlass vs Sword

While I was debating between using CT combat and Striker combat for the next game, I noticed something somewhat interesting. In CT (Traveller Book), a cutlass is almost in every way better than a sword, more damage, better to hit, mostly. The cutlass is slightly heavier, but the extra die of damage is more than worth it. But, on the Striker chart, a sword is almost in every way better than a cutlass, and is lighter to boot.

I wonder why the back and forth. Not that swords and cutlasses end up being the linchpin of the game or anything.
