I decided to try the lick test upon learning that Gentiles are made from soda lime glass. They exhale a salt vapour. I licked a Gentile then licked a Murano. The Gentile tastes a tad salty, the Murano does not. I noticed that the Elk weight shares something in common with my Gentiles. It has a nasty habit of getting dirty quickly like they. So i subjected it to the lick test. It tastes salty. It must be a Gentile. It also of a very dense nearly sugar free glass like my Gentiles.
