Honestly, If your planning on smoking out of it, no, don't buy it, you can buy a Syrian that would smoke way better than that 150 dollar thing. Now it's very beautiful, but i wouldn't rely on it for smoking, as decoration and to say you've got a pretty authentic hookah, then yes, but i wouldn't smoke out of it, the bowl is huge, and a local bar here uses bowls like this, way to deep and there's no way you can manage your coals, it would be beautiful for a collection, but not for smoking.

Plus it looks like it has a wood stem with a wood downstem. Also it looks very top heavy and easy to flip over.

For 150 bucks go get yourself A Syrian AND a KM, this is only good for show.

And don't let me get started on the hose. NO PURGE!

Just get yourself a good syrian or KM, don't waste your money on a decoration.

Bad idea. wood absorbs flavor like a sponge and will eventually rot with moisture.

i have an idea for you:
http://hookahcompany.com/wood_irania...h_672_prd1.htm

same thing for less basically.

but both are made for tombac, if you want to smoke modern tobaccos, you may be better off w/ something in brass.

It's definitely beautiful, handcrafted is always nice. Whether it comes to pipes, hookah, clocks, etc.. But sometimes it's just practical buying reproduced pieces. They end up lasting a lot longer, and if something does happen to them you can always replace parts. I'd go for a nice KM or syrian hookah. You could get yourself an amazing piece for $150.

I just wanna know how big that freakin bowl is; seems like it can hold 100g+ lol
But honestly it seems like a very bad idea if your gonna be smoking a lot of different flavors. Your gonna have a huge build up of different flavors which won't be too good. It's like adding ketchup, salt, pepper, hot sauce, and soy sauce into water and drinking it :P lol jkjk

Yea I would love a hookah like that, to show off in a glass case, but not for smoking!

SO YES OMG SYRIAN!, lol, if i was looking for a hookah to show off i'd buy it, but we SMOKE hookah, not stare at it, lol.
