Default Lookie what I got!

So I placed an order with saharasmoke.com last Thursday. My stuff came in today. I won't bother telling you what I got, let the pictures do the talking



Going to get smoked on this baby!



An unexpected surprise was a free hose in the box!



Anyone have an idea what kind of hose that is? Washable or not? Also, more general question; is there a breaking in process for new hoses? I just got a Razan about two weeks ago and haven't had a chance to smoke more than twice(finals week). It smells all plasticy and when using milder shisha (SB White Peach, I'm looking at you), the plasticyness kinda comes through.

Not a washable hose. Hoses with wood tips should not have water sitting in them for long periods of time either, mildew will appear.

Razans have the plastic smell for awhile, but depending on the flavors you are breaking it in with, it will go away in 1-5 uses. I use orange flavors to break in my razan, it always works.

Nice KM by the way!

Nice order. No the hose is not washable. Unless it proudly claims that the hose is washable then assume it is not. I have that hookah. It's a beauty and smokes very nicely. Nice selection of flavors. i have not had the kiwi or pina colada but the rest is a solid choice.

Regarding the Razan, wash it. that will help get rid of the plastic favor sooner.

HH Pina Colada is the best PC tobacco I have tried.

Hey odd question. If you look at the right side of the 1st picture, you can see the charcoal carrier that saharasmoke.com was kind enough to gimme free of charge. Anyone if it's ok to heat up my coals in that thing? I mean, just pop that on the gas. It's all metal; the handle is welded on there. I fell like the whole thing would get heated up. Would rather not ruin it.

It is just a carrier. If you put the whole thing on the grill/stove it would take a very long time for any heat to reach the coals and then probably not enough to light them. More than likely you would end up damaging the coal carrier. If the handle is metal you would not be able to grip it, wood will ignite and plastic will melt. I assume it's like most other coal carriers and punched from sheet metal entirely.

You're going to wish you had a kilo of that Root Beer. I've smoked waaaay too much of it since it was stocked at my local store.

Hello, my name is Zen, and I'm a rootbeerholic.

theres a video with what a new nammor/razan hose contains after washing it...id suggest washing it because that plastic smell should also be the dye.
