    The "Willi Korth Waffenfabrikation" ("Willi Korth Weapons Production") at Ratzeburg was never a subsidiary of Dynamit Nobel. However, for a certain period Willi Korth sold his revolvers exclusively via Dynamit Nobel and so they were marked with a seal sporting the names "Korth" and "Dynamit Nobel". Around 1977 Willi Korth ended his business with Dynamit Nobel (the profit margin for him was much too low) and took selling in his own hands. This also led to a change of the seal sporting only the name "Korth" from then on. This took place during the production series 31xxx - 296 guns out of 393 in this production run did keep the old seal however (Korth had yet to fulfil an old production contract with Dynamit Nobel), the remainder sported already the new one.

    The original company of Willi Korth ceased to exist on June 30, 1981. But the brand name has been preserved until now by a number of (more or less dedicated) successors.

    The last production series made by Willi Korth himself is the series 33xxx. When Willi Korth died on October 10, 1992 a lot of his knowledge went with him (he had not written down much - most was only stored in his head) and had to be "re-invented" by his successors...
