Cheapskate is an Invention perk that has a chance to transmute a gathered resource to a lower tier. The effect is the reversal of the Polishing perk. It can be created in tool gizmos.

When the perk triggers, it prompts the message: Your cheapskate perk downgrades the gathered resource. Even if the gathered item downgrades, the experience gained is always that of the original item.
