It is perfect for cutting. Was it in acetone and the precipitate looks just like the real thing. The only real difference is that real gear shards will snap if you try and bend them, whereas chop shards are more likely to flex.
If your an asshole and practice making it a bit, you can easily fob it off as the real thing to whacked out gear addicts. Just don't do it to your regulars
And no I don't talk shit lol.
