Anyone know the Japanese word for swordsmith? The closest thing I could work out was kenya

Crap, I forgot to also ask. What is the Japanese term for sharp? Surprisingly, the dictionary I have only had it in the context of sharp of mind

In this situation I normally get the text on the screen, do a screen dump and save it as a JPEG. This then posts nicely onto the forum.

As my laziness knows no bounds, I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to navigate to http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/wwwjdic.html and lookup the word swordsmith to see the text I cut & pasted into my above message.
