This is the bloodletters profile (BTB bestiary, p. 80):
M WS BS S T W I A Ld
4 5 0 5 3 1 4 1 8
Weapons/Armour: Bloodletters fight with a massive double-handed sword.
Bloodletters are armed with a double-handed sword. That means they always strike last with S7? Or the Hellblades are included in its profile (S5)?
What do you think?

The weapon Strength bonus should be treated as separate to the profile. Therefore these bloodletters will strike last with Strength 7 attacks.
To justify this, I point to the rules for bestigors just above the rules for bloodletters on the same page of the BTB Bestiary. On a roll of 3-5 they come with halberds and on a 6 they come with double-handed axes. The halberds and double-handed axes must separate to the profile because halberds add +1 Strength to attacks while the double-handed axes add +2 Strength while the swords (when a 1-2 is rolled) adds no additional Strength to attacks.
