Default Can anyone tell me if this is a real hookah or a display for decoration?

I found this on a turkish gift website, its under the category or Nargile(which is what the Turkish call their hookahs) as you can see it doesnt have a air release valve and it just doesnt look like other hookahs i've seen. Does anyone know if I can actually smoke out of this thing?

Nargile is in Hebrew too.

Looks very real to me. The purge valve isn't really that necessary if you're good with heat management.

A lot of rigs don't include purge valves.

I m sure it would "work" to smoke out of. How well it smokes...well that is up in the air.

+1, however it would be nice to have in your collection if you have several hookahs.

there's a hookah bar close to my house that uses those rigs you are limited to the one bowl type since it has a female connection on the hookah stem but i really love the hose they are not washable since they are leather but i didn't notice a bad flavor ghosting in the bar i went to. THey do smoke nice and like they said once you get heat management down the valve isn't needed. Atm that style hookah with the pipe is the only thing i want for my collection other than the crystal mya just for the looks

The hookah bar we have here, i think they dont even wash their pipes becuz the tip and the grommet where the bowl goes are both so damn dirty even if u order it first or so, u know what i mean

but it doesnt effect the taste, no idea how is that possible
and banana+coconut still rocks there,
at home it does not .

The owner of this bar know's his shit he didn't wash them but had a blower unit that he hooks up to the hoses to air them out after strong flavors
