Re: Brass Egyptians
i don't think Caravanasarai sells Brass Egyptians... I can't see one.
brass Egyptians... i don't think that's entirely possible over here. They MAY have brass cores, but some vendors might just tell you that. in all honesty.... i don;t know why you would want an Egyptian when you can get a better quality Syrian that is FULL BRASS, not just brass cored.
Hajo mentioned that one site (i don't remeber the name at the moment, it started with an "f"), and he called and asked, and the owner said his Egyptians were of Brass Construction. You would have to order online from across the pond if you live in the US though. Shipping may be high.
Brass Egytpians are just extinct on the US market. I'm sure there is a couple, but they are most likely sitting in some head-shop somewhere getting ignored.
Searching for one on the internet, other than at the site Hajo mentioned, is a lost cause.
This is the exact reason i would prefer a hand-made Syrian over an Egyptian (better construction, more durable, all brass).
"Stainless" steel isn;t stainless anyway, so why play Roulette everytime you are buying an Egyptian when you can rest assured your getting a quality pipe with a Syrian.
