Chalk Made in USA

Friends,

long ago Metolious was selling chalk "Made in USA" and it had a guarantee "satisfied or money back". Now it's Made in China, and without guarantee.

Any clue who still sell that chalk, and I mean that one, the super sticky Made in USA?
Thanks,
E

It's been a long time since anyone has made chalk in the USA, at least any of the more commonly found brands (Metoliou, BD, Frank Endo, Teknik here in Canada).

Are you concerned about supporting the NA economy, lead poisoning from China, or you just think that Metolious chalk has changed over time?

M has changed over time. In fact, in the past (made in USA) it has a warranty "satisfy or money back". I do not think it was a glitch in the design file that made disappear the warranty...

Were it the same, the warranty was still in place.

M is not a chalk producer. It is made by somebody else. I am trying to find it out.
