Default Help Please?

This is the hookah I will be getting from Turkey, grandfather will be bringing it over because he is the only one there at the moment. I need someone to identify it im not sure what kind of hookah it is that's why im here. Was bought for around 100 AUD which is about the 120 over there. Also I noticed that this hookah does not have a purge valve.

cant say for sure, but that loks like a hookah designed for use with tombac... not typical modern tobaccos.

At the moment I wouldn't be getting pictures because my mum has already came back from the vacation, I will be getting the real thing in about 2 months when my grandfather returns back from Turkey. If you look really close into the picture by clicking the full image it looks like the bowl is clay which isn't glazed so I thought it might be one of those Lebanese bowls like HJ sells but what would a Lebanese bowl be doing in Turkey. Sorry if I couldn't really help I'll take full pictures when it comes.

Thanks Guys;

Mostly all turkish rigs don't have purge valves, and it is a male fitting bowl or like you said the syrian bowls john carries. Here is a picture I found on google of a hookah that looks similar to yours and you can see that it is a male fitting bowl.



EDIT: Lebanese bowls, not syrian*

well aren't you lucky! My one and only hookah is a Turkish Nargile i bought while over there last year!

What Kind of hookah is it? Well its not really easy to say....Its not like saying its Egyptian, Syrian, KM or what ever.
To be honest most to all of these larger hookahs are Turkish Style Nargiles that are usually built by small (I mean small) local factories. Most of the gaskets or seals are done with sports tape which dosent affect it much. (do see the hose gasket isnt though)>(ususally the hose is a bit different and has no gasket)

The bowl is in fact unglazed and fits into the stem unlike most hookah heads.
They are fairly sized and are great for smoking Nakhla.

The hose on the one in your pic is a bit odd for a Turkish hookah as it has a more common look unlike the ones in the pic from Danyal. those are more like it.

I was wondering as you mentioned the price. Did your grandpappy buy it in Istanbul at the grand bazzar or the egyptian spice market because that price 120 YTL seems a bit off for that Kind (PM ME ILL EXPLAIN IF YOU WANT)

Yes turkish pipes dont have a purge valve most of the time but thats never been a problem for me...And i am new to Hookah (well myself making it).
