Produced in France since 1919, the trade of the blacksmith has undergone significant changes, but it remains a trade for men and enthusiasts. At Wichard, they manage the entire process, from the production of equipment and stamping right through to packaging. Their expertise is passed on throughout the company and they take pride in having kept all manufacturing in France.
There are a significant number of steps involved in the development of each forged Wichard product. For our iconic 2480 snap hook, for example, 21 steps are involved, with the majority of these carried out by a Wichard employee.
