Probably. If it isn't nailed down too hard some knife maker has used it. I don't have much doubt that you could use it if you want to. There are many alloys of brass, however, and some are much harder and polish up with different shades of color than others. A little testing when using unknown materials is usually a good idea ...

I have a couple of solid brass kick plates that i use for spacers and liners...they work great and seem not to tarnish as readily as
barstock brass i buy from jantz.....make sure they are solid brass and not coated steel...

Guilty as charged...

The one I have seems to be pretty hard, springy, for brass... probably work-hardened for it's previous life.

Have two in the shop that I bought from a flea market. Not sure if it is brass or closer to bronze but worked for spacers.
