No, my Brass!
As a lot of you folks know, I am a big proponent of Syrian brass and Nour style hookahs. My main rig is the large AF solid, and it has been a great rig since the day i got it.
But here's the problem: the gold colored parts of the stem are coming off.
At first, I thought it was just some tarnish showing on the brass, so I figured I could polish it off later. As it got worse, I realized it is actually the gold paint apparently coming off.
My best guess is that its getting rubbed off because I transport my hookah a lot. Has anyone else had this happen, or does anyone have any suggestions on fixing the appearance?
