Made in USA?

  1. Jan 13, 2009 #1
    i am a knife collector and in this one knife forum there is some times much talk of made in USA markings...
    some one who was not a reg poster said there was very little or no brass made in the usa any longer.. that 90% of new brass stock was from china..
    my question then was
    is there any new brass made in the usa still?
    and what of the recycling..
    i thought there was a lively market in that it would be used over a lot..
    is this like other metals that it is cheaper to use new rather then recycled?
    do any of you have info i can contest his statement with?

    There are naturally many scrap recyclers that produce low quality brasses at small scales. I don't know about large scale production though.
