Default New Hookah smoker has a question

I started smoking the Hookah two days ago, but I bought it three years ago.

I tried it once when I first bought it, couldn't get it to work, and just put it away until two days ago.
Now I love it.

I have a few questions, but will only ask one right now.

How can I tell what kind of Hookah I have?
I bought it so long ago, I can't remember what it is.

I bought it at a local smoke shop, it came with a metal case.
It has a non washable thin hose, with a wooden mouthpiece.
I put a magnet to the hose, and it is magnetized inside.

Stands about 18" tall, the clay bowl is 2 & 7/8 inches wide, and it has a plain........CORRECTION....IT STANDS ABOUT 28" TALL.
painted glass base, with a stainless? stem.

Is there anyway I can tell what kind of a Hookah I have


Thanks.

It's probably a chinese knockoff. I picked up one from a local smoke shop some time ago that matches your description almost exactly.. And it's just some cheapo chinese.. Smokes alright... But now it's just for display.. Got replaced by my KM.

Thanks, that's what I thought it was, as I don't think I paid very much for it.

Now I'll have to start shopping around for a reasonably priced KM.

your hose is non washable if a magnet sticks to it.

Yeah it sounds like my el cheapo hookah in my avatar. Mine actually smokes shockingly well for costing $40.

My cheapy hookah smokes like a champ as well. All it needs is some shisha and those lovable coconut coals!

I know pics will do wonders, but I don't have a camera, which is why I tried to explain it as best I could.

I think it is Chinese also, so that is what I'll go with.

It's almost certainly a chinese knock off. I would invest in a better hose (Something wider gauge, and washable) and possibly a different bowl.

I just noticed some Arabic writing on the ash tray.
I've also been checking out bowls on line, and the bowl looks Egyptian.

So with the Arabic writing, and the Egyptian looking bowl, I'm now starting to think this is Egyptian, and not Chinese.

if you can screw off the hose port and purge valve then it is most likely a Chinese and not a Egyptian.

KM is a bit overpriced in my opinion. You can get just as good smoke from a Syrian hookah. AF solid is great to.

Can't unscrew either.
I even put a rag on the port and tried using a pair of pliers,
can't budge it.\
The port is not removable.

I am in fact looking at a Syrian Nour, and also an AF.
But I have my eyes on a used Mya crystal pyramid bohemian.
