Can anyone enlighten me whether which one is a better weapon for a frost DW dps dk with the standard cookie cutter 1/52/18 deep frost/ unholy subspec, http://www.wowhead.com/item=51516 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=51916
Currently im wielding the heroic mode frost giant's cleaver and i have no access to any icc 25 hm weapons as my guild is only focusing on 10man HM raids, the 2.2k rating weapon has sweet weapon dmg but i dont know whether changing to the ilvl277 pvp weapons is an upgrade or not

Can't say for sure without seeing the rest of your gear but having done a comparison i rawr using my own gear the difference between the two is tiny, far less than 1% in favor for the PvP axe.

Edit: The above was comparing them as OH since I had my http://www.wowhead.com/item=51916 in that hand. As MH the difference was about 1,5% (with the PvP axe winning once again). I had another weapon in the other hand (http://www.wowhead.com/item=51893) but not sure how much if any it influences the result.

Well the PvP weapon is higher top damage, and you do get more Attack Power from it.
The curve is the actual damage of the weapons and the Agi/ArPen on the Cleaver.
So it is a hard call to say. Especially without actually using the weapons to compare.
