That looks to be an Egyptian Nour not the Syrian Nour everyone raves about.

the hose port and purge valve are clearly Chinese. The stem also appears to be of Chinese origin (note the tacky fake gems). However, the seller noted that this is from the Karebetian Co. and Karebetian is the sole US importer of Al Nakhla moassel and the Egyptian ''nour'' line of shishas. This leads me to several conclusions. 1) Karebetian or (Egyptian) nour are importing chinese rigs for export, or 2) Nour is importing Chinese components and using them to produce low end shishas. Either way, I wouldn't touch this rig w/a ten foot hose.

Nour is a brand name registered by the importer here in the United States. That does not necessarily mean that the hookahs with that brand are always Syrian. There are some Egyptian ones and some Chinese ones such as the one in this thread. There is even canned food with the same brand all of which are made by different manufacturers.

If you really want a Nour, a nice syrian one that is, TH ^ has some really nice ones, and AF has a few in stock that are beautiful as well. Whatever you do, stay away from that thing.

This hookah is made in china. I bought the exact same one three months ago just to try it. This is crap, the stem get hot so quickly and the smoke become so harsh because of that. I smoked with it three times and then I gave it to a friend.

yeah i agree with what everyone is saying.
looks cheap and chinese.
hose port and purge are identical to chinese hookah
and looking closely it seems to come with two different bowls.
(one female, and one male or Lebanese style)
strange

also he would of called the stem a stem, instead of "the silver part" if it was the type of nour that sells for $80+
