Ishikawa Goemon (* 16th century; † August 10, 1594) is a Japanese folklore hero. Similar to Robin Hood, he is said to have stolen from the rich and given it to the poor. Many myths and legends still exist about him today, such as the failed assassination attempt on Toyotomi Hideyoshi, whereupon he and other relatives were convicted and executed alive in boiling oil. He is said to have heroically tried to save his son by holding him out of the cauldron. The John Lee Goemon Katana takes up this topic. The tsuba shows, among other things, Goemon being executed after a wood engraving by Toyokuni Ichiyoai. In addition to other motifs, the Fuchi also features his name in Japanese letters. - Sharp blade made of 9260 carbon spring steel (not rustproof), suitable for cutting tests. - Unokubi-zukuri style blade. - Hand-painted tsuba with classic woodcut motifs. - Handle wrapping made of brown suede lined with blackened ray skin. - Black high-gloss lacquered scabbard with buffalo horn ends. - High quality, two-tone Sageo. - Manufactured according to museum templates. - Delivery takes place with a protective cover made of fabric and in an attractive collector's box. - Every original John Lee sword comes with a seal and a certificate.
