Forget his name, but he is/was more than controversial, had a zillion website names registered, and I don't think it active anymore. Was a Westerner dealing in Japan. Think Guido will know more.
Ah yes. James Miller.

Passed several years ago. I've never heard anything good about him here in the states and apparently the feeling was the same in Japan.

From the links above, he used to run....
As a newbie then, it was a bit like an Aladdin's cave at the end of the Omotesando in Harajuku. It is now long gone. I went in once and thought I found the bargain of a lifetime, a polished wakizashi in new shirasaya for 50万円... which I read as 50,000 yen. I came back with five crisp notes and a smile on my face... How wrong I was. I tried to buy his Fujishiro's instead. Which also failed. His staff did point me to an excellent sword bookstore on Yasukuni dori though.
Ah the good old days.
