WELCOME TO CONNOISSEUR ARMS,
YOUR SOURCE FOR RARE AND EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY JAPANESE SAMURAI SWORDS, KODUGU AND JAPANESE SAMURAI ART.
My name is GORAN GLUCINA and I have been involved with the Japanese Culture and the Japanese Samurai Sword now for over thirty 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.
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 Sensei whom I have studied the Japanese Traditional Martial Art of Karate Do under his Guidance. My friendship with him now spans over 30 years. ABE KEIGO Sensei has been involved in collecting Samurai Swords now for sixty years and belongs to a long lineage of Samurai Family in Ehime Ken, Shizuoka, Japan. 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. ABE KEIGO SENSEI has an excellent eye and old school knowledge which he has passed down to me.
As with the Japanese Traditional Martial Arts and the philosophy attached, this is also strongly relevant to the Japanese Sword and Kodogu, learning and acquiring knowledge never ceases. I always welcome 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.
PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR A PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL SERVICE. MY MOTTO IS " HONESTY AND ETTIQUETTE ALWAYS REMAINS"
