As for the "bouri" one (which is way to expensive on your website!!!
), I bought a somewhat similar one, years ago from an Egyptian wholesaler in Madrid. It is all metal, and I have seen in books that pipes similar to mine (in brass color, or, as mine and as the "bouri" of your website, nickel plated and thus silver colored) are, or were, extensively used by locals in markets around El Cairo, particularly in the Inbaba Camel Market
. I keep mine as a nice, and somewhat strange, addition to my collection
, but mark that I SOON STOPED SMOKING IT BECAUSE IT STARTED RUSTING VERY EARLY, AND THUS, TASTING BAD
. the main inside tube in mine is not copper.
