Re: el ashrey shishas
I used to have a couple of El Ashreys prior to my recent move and they were very high quality pieces and every bit as good as KMs. I think they are still imported to the UK and Germany but I don't think they were ever sold in the states. El Ashrey and Shisha King are probably the largest narghile makers in Egypt that are not imported to the states. One of the ones I had had a smoke chamber that was threaded and broke into two parts which made cleaning very easy.
