Killatunga : That's a wise guy right there. You can learn anything and everything, except how to think.

M dubs : That bridge at 1:14

The Stig : Anyone notice the bridge at 1:14 has no railings?

ItchyKneeSon : I've been in Japan for over 8 years driving the narrow streets in my tiny Honda Today, but I had to rewind to 1:14 a couple times and pause just to make sure there was a car (a newer Suzuki Swift, if I'm not mistaken) driving over a narrow bridge that had no guardrails or anything to prevent a car from falling to its demise. Dass crayzee. By the way, I have many 'nata' of varying sizes and shapes. They're pretty gnarly hatchets. You should see Japanese weed wackers, or 'kusa kariki'. Basically, the weed wacker you know, but the nylon string is replaced by the blade from a circular saw.

Valerie & Bryan : They look a like saibara "the old blacksmith" and grey "the apprentice that wear the same thing" in game Harvest Moon 🤔

fireaza : When the video started and he referred to his father as "oyaji" ("my old man") I knew this old guy was going to be pretty interesting!

Dogey Doge : The apprentice looks like a white version of chance the rapper

Hyper Vanilo : The title remind me of a Japanese guy that make knife out of rice, wood, underpants, ice, carbon, chocolate, and freaking stone

Mr Urquhart : So does this count as CUTTING EDGE journalism?

shadow : 1:15 I almost had a heart attack when I saw that bridge

Ezehelm : Matsumura-san's accent and voice reminds me of a Studio Ghibli character =)
