Default i don't know what to think about this Egyptian?

Hey there,

I am still on the look out for a hookah since my experience with Hookahhowto.com came to a halt so i was wondering what to think about this one otherwise i am looking at the dark trimetal of hookah-shisha...All i know about this egyptian is that:

38''
medium brass stem
down stem copper
blue middle is in plastic

what do you think guys?

a mere 90$ usd, that s what scares me the most about this deal, you have KM which goes for 120$ usd and more and then this interesting piece at 90$USD so i kinda wonder if it is not an imitation or it isn't as sturdy as it looks...

Unfortunately you can't tell a whole lot about the quality from the picture, but it is a beautiful piece! Even if it doesn't smoke that well, it seems like a nice addition to your collection, esp at only $90. Plus, why would anyone take the time to make a piece as pretty as that if it was just crap?

I would go for it for $90. It looks solid, but that blue piece is kind of tacky, but still, it's a solid looking piece.

I made the mistake of spendin 50 bucks on a generic, regret every moment of it. Take your time and find one that speaks to you

If you get a KM you'll be on the right path... it's a safe investment you know that you are buying quality on the other hand with a generic egyptian you could regret yourself... and 90 dollars is not a baragain so... my advise is to spend a little bit more (look at **********, you can get a KM, a Temsah or an AF for about 100 bucks) and you will never regret that decision

Do you have the ability to see it in person or is this a blind online purchase?

Personally, I wouldn't get it. Without knowing how the draw an purge is you might end up with a hookah that is nothing better then decorations if you find that it has more restriction than a mya.

It is what we called a blind online purchase but i can trust the guy who's selling it to me otherwise there is always the refund aspect of it...

Well if thats the case and you know you can return it if for any reason its not what you imagined it would be then go for it. Worst case scenario your out 20 bucks for shipping.

If you're going to spend $90 on an egyptian that you may not be satisfied with, why not pony up the extra $20-$30 for the KM or AF or Temsah that you like and know that you'll be happy with.

Thats not the case though, he likes this hookah because theres not a KM, AF, Temsah, or anything else that hes seen like it. So my vote is if you can return it for any reason, then go for it.

Some judgments are passed in shadows...if you think what i think, then it is preferable not to mention the unmentionable.

Meh imo...I hate the base on it!

I had a 22" egyptian with the same genie base (different color). Hookah tipped over A LOT because of the shape of the base.

I'd say get it if you could get a different base. Trust me stay away from those genie bases! lol

I would only buy it if I could test it first. It looks kind of sketchy to me.

Of course tat probably is not an option...

If it's actually all brass then I would most definitely buy it over and KM. The problem is, most people can't really tell if it's brass and just say it is. I think that if it was confirmed brass, you should go for it.

thanks guys for all the advices i think i made my choice with John and got one of his Black Pharaonie which seems sturdy and at a good price, regardless of coupon codes and such. So, therefore KM craftsmanship will be mine soon enough...thanks for all the comment though!
