Default Re: Where to find a particular type of bowl?

Further more, the single large hole means that a great deal of care needs to be used when shredding the tombac to assure the pieces are long enough that they don't fall in or other wise clog the holes.
There is a small brass screen that covers the hole that the traditional smokers use or if that is not available they fit a pebble in the hole that allows smoke to pass that stops the tombac from falling down the hole and blocking the stem of the hookah
