I have been trying to learn more about the sword I have (posted under Army Dress Sword).
Does anybody have any information on exactly who Paul Weyersberg was? I can find nothing about him on the internet, and have contacted wkc-solingen without a lot of response. Their website has basically nothing for the period just before and during the war, I know the company was pretty much destroyed then.
