Why choosing a Wichard forged product?

Forging is the only method that guarantees the internal solidity of metal and improves its mechanical characteristics by aligning the material's fibers. The forging process enables optimizing the size and mechanical performances of the parts by reducing their weight and volume. All our products are forged, and carefully controlled and tested according to extremely rigorous procedures to ensure their quality.
