carbonite block

Post by Stubbs »

After discovery of having a repro lumat bow I am questioning some of my other items now. After some advise on my carbonite block if its gen or repro.

Iv only ever handled my own (carbonite block) so don't have anything to compare it to.

I believe having EPMs, as yours appears to, is a sign of a genuine one

The repros smell like cat piss and are brittle.

Never handled a repro one. Didn't even know they were being made. The original is quite a sturdy thing. Feels quite dense.

This looks real to me. I'm guessing if you had an original in hand you would know straight away

Maybe get down to farthest from with it and compare. Someone will have another
