These are the translations (English, with Kanji, just Hiragana and Katakana, Romanji) used in the video.

"The sword was sharp enough to cut stone."



Katana wa ishi o kireru hodo surudokatta.

"A swordsmith has to work in very hot conditions."

刀工 は暑い環境で仕事をしなければならない


Toukou wa atsui kankyou de shigoto o shinakereba naranai.
