Default My new hookah. Is it a Nour?

Yesterday i went to an international fair in Cyprus and there was a shop with a lot of hookahs. Most of them were generics Egyptian but i found a Syrian one. Asking price was 120 Euros but after 5 minutes of bargaining i bought it 50 Euros

Its a Syrian one if im not mistaken. Its very heavy with some detail on it. But is it a Syriar Nour? Btw its smokes amazing with my Razan Sultan.

Maybe i'm not correct, but i think Nours have a different kind of downstem, and i think they are made with traditional chambers, not with plated common.

Anyway it's a nice hookah, a love the clean base.

Thats weird. That exact vase came on one of my KMs.

I ve never seen a screw apart nour or a plated common chambered one. Also the tray looks to generic to be nour.

How does she smoke?

En je polla pou sou epiren re yo, oi pos en ta a3izi o narkiles alla erifkes ton jiallo :P

Doesnt look like a nour to me (not because i dont know the specific model) but because of the heart and ashtray. Nours usually lhave flatter ashtrays and more traditional conical hearts

its a chinese knock-off, sorry dude... but look at the holes for the hose/purge, there are 6, which means a common chamber, i.e. chinese rig. plus the stem unscrews into smaller parts.

My Syrian brass is common chambered and unscrews. You never know what has been produced and is circulating through the market as there are MANY mfg's that we dont really hear about.

On a side note I cant believe how long that down stem is!!

now that's a downstem! i'm glad you enjoy the smoke. definitely not a nour. i'd say it's more like an al nawra imitation.

eh...

haaaa!

basically--- glass is generic bell, dont believe what the stem is because of it.

some nours/nawras do break down, and i was surprised by the existance of plated syrians myself but they exist.... and ones that break down mya style...

So could this be syrian...possibly, but SS makes basically all those componenets too...

Definitely looks Syrian to me. The design of the stem is what makes me think Syrian, but don't believe everything I say as I'm not positive on that. Nice to hear it's smoking well!
