Dear guests of our web-site!

This project is devoted to life and work of a talented German artist and graphic artist Paul Casberg. In spite of the fact that the bloom of his activity fell in the period of 1933-1945, all images or symbols of the Third Reich are not propaganda of Nazism ideas, they are an inalienable part of artworks of the indicated epoch. All images represented on this web-site should be considered exceptionally from the point of view of scientific research of artist`s creative activity. We do not propagandize and do not discuss ideas which these works could initially ground on. If the depiction of symbolic or any other elements and attributes of the Third Reich can cause you moral discomfort or effect negative psychological influence we ask you to quit using this web-site.

"I am personally immensely pleased that fellow collector Denys Vasylyev has elected to continue my own initial research into the life and times of the very elusive German artist Paul Casberg. As many German edged weapon collectors know, I have personally made well over one hundred different trips to Solingen, the “City of Swords” between 1959/1960 to the present to conduct research for one or more of my reference books(s) on the subject of German edged weaponry. I quickly found that researching the edged weapon industry was easy when compared to researching Paul Casberg. Many of my research efforts on Casberg resulted in complete dead ends. I am most hopeful that collector, Den Vasylyev will ultimately expand his initial Casberg website and ultimately develop a concise reference book on one member of the Third Reich period that we historians and collectors seem to know the least about! Hopefully, the website will eventually be able to “close the chapter” on the life and times of German artist Paul Casberg. Author Den Vasylyev is correct when he acknowledges that the superb artistry of this single individual German artist is the reason why many of us collect World War II German militaria today! "

"A site dedicated to the talented artist and designer Paul Casberg, with his many contributions the world appeal of dress daggers, is just wonderful. It shows the foundation of the creative mind behind it, that brings the artifacts from thoughts on pencil, to actual physical manifestation. Congrats! This looks like a wonderful project. No easy project. Everything else looks very good and professional. Congratulations."
