Many graphical ftp clients will allow you to edit a file on a remote 
system using the editor of your choice -- a fact that suggests that 
ftp/sftp support in an editor is not very important.

My personal favorite ftp client is Fetch, but that does not support 
sftp, so I tried out Yummy FTP and bought it. I feel it is less mature 
than Fetch, but reasonably well designed and shows great promise. Also, 
I was impressed with the support. However, the main reason I bought it 
was VMS support (not something likely to matter to most of you, but if 
it does, there aren't many options). 

I've run into a few snags, including a crash in 1.0.4 using edit mode, 
but that's fixed in the current 1.0.5 betas, and 1.0.5 should be 
released any time now.
