Clay tempering is an art, as well as a science. The traditional clay tempering techniques are perhaps the pinnacle of Japanese sword design and construction. Not only is the natural temper-line, the "hamon" a beautiful sight, open to artistic interpretation. It also serves a very functional purpose. The resulting clay tempering process produces a very hard edge, while the body of the blade remains somewhat softer. This means that the edge is more resistant to dulling and cuts better, while the body is able to flex on impact, allowing maximum force without breakage. Using a blend of modern and traditional Japanese techniques the blade is fully hand polished to a brilliant shine, as well as sharpened to an impeccable standard. A perfect sword for ‘tameshigiri’, the bamboo & straw mat cutting exercise. 

Here we have a straight bladed sword. This style often referred to as a "Ninja". Early on in Japanese Samurai history, they actually used straight bladed swords, before the trend of curved blades came about.
