Pretty much these days if they don't proudly claim to be made in the US, then it is probably made in Taiwan.

There's so many emoticons to use here for this reply, I think almost every one of them can be used in some way here to express a reply, except for maybe the undecided. For meeee, this is one of those situations where it might be best not to say anything.    :-X     :-X
