Default Re: Al-Fakher - Soft Black shisha?

That is interesting. Off hand i'd guess that some shop keepers assume that Zaghloul is tombac which is to say that they don't know their stock. Very often people that run shops don't know anything about what they sell. I once went to a shop that specialized in handmade rugs run by an Iranian who tried to tell me that an item I was interested in was made by Berbers when it obviously was from Armenia. I'm far from a textile expert yet I knew that the guy was full of shit. I once had an Indian guy running a shisha lounge tell me that Rolland QLs were the best coals on the market so don't presume that ethnicity equals knowledge of anything.
