My name is Goran Glucina and I have been involved with the Japanese Culture and the Japanese Samurai Sword now for over forty years. I have lived in Japan for ten years and have had the privilege and exposure to many private collections, Museum exhibition's and also have had mentors who have given me their precious time and patience to educate me over the years on Japanese history and the mystique Samurai Sword and Japanese Samurai History.

I belong to the NBTHK (Nihon Bijitsu Hozon Kyokai) Society for the Preservation of the Japanese Sword. I have also had the privilege of meeting the renowned Karate and Iaido Master Abe Keigo whom I have studied the Japanese Traditional Martial Art of Karate Do under his Guidance. My collaboration with him has spanned for over 40 years. Abe Keigo Shihan has been involved in collecting Samurai Swords for sixty-five years and belongs to a long lineage of Samurai Family in Ehime Ken (Ehime prefecture) Matsuyama on the Island of Shikoku in the province of.Ehime Ken in the Samurai Era was called Iyo no Kuni ( Iyo Province). Abe Keigo retained his original family home which is over two hundred years old and has been kept in perfect condition. In the home on the walls there are still Yari and Naginata from the Samurai Era and other artefacts of great interest which were used by his family ancestors.Also surrounding the house is a magnificent Japanese Garden which has trees over 200 years old. He has been my long time mentor and has given much patience and time to advance my knowledge and passion for this great subject of Nihonto which I totally immersed myself. Abe Keigo Shihan has an excellent eye and old school knowledge which he has passed down to me. His long time collaboration with Ogasawara Nobuo Sensei also has deepened my knowledge immensely.

As with the Japanese Traditional Martial Arts and the philosophy of Budo attached, this is also strongly relevant to the Japanese Sword and Kodogu, learning and acquiring knowledge never ceases. I always welcome genuine discussion and opinions on the subject.

I have established this Web-Site to offer the collector and investor an opportunity to buy Japanese Samurai Swords and Kodogu ( Sword Fittings) at the high level end of the market. I personally believe that quality and rarity are important factors with any purchase and therefore offer only authentic and best quality items on this site that are not available elsewhere. Also the group of contact's that I am associated with in Japan, and proficiency with the Japanese language and Culture enables me to have an opportunity to acquire exquisite items not readily available outside of Japan nor in Japan. I believe in quality over quantity and one great acquisition can be a collection in its own right.
