Question Where to find a particular type of bowl?

The owner of my local lounge, an Egyptian expat, has introduced me to the more traditiional way of hooka with the strong black moassle and no foil. He uses a very broad shallow clay bowl for this and I have been looking to pick one of these up. Any body know any vendors online who carry this kind of bowl?

Thanks

The only thing you should ever smoke without a screen/foil is tombac. I've spent a good deal of time in the Middle East and I am huge fan of black moassel and I have never seen anyone smoke it without foil. Of course back there the stuff is a bit fresher and while still fairly dry it's far from the dessicated stuff we in the West get.

As to the bowl I believe you are referring to a tombac style bowl and those come in either clay or brass styles. Neither are found in the West except if you are extremely lucky. They tend to have a diameter much greater then normal bowls, larger holes, thicker walls and are a good deal shallower then most moassel type bowls. Often times they come with wire cages to help hold the leaf in place. I have one and it's up on my photobucket page.

And we have a winner!!. Thanks Glostersa, thats exactly what Jimmy has, in unglazed. Now I have to find someone here in the US that sells one of them. The Duty to bring one into the states will probably be more than what the thing sells for.

Personally I don't like ungazed bowls because they tend to be harder to clean and more fragile then glazed bowls. Also, for tombac the type of bowls mentioned are not that great in my opinion since the bottoms are not flat which makes packing more difficult. Further more, the single large hole means that a great deal of care needs to be used when shredding the tombac to assure the pieces are long enough that they don't fall in or other wise clog the holes.

Ideally I'd want a traditional brass tombac bowl but when i've seen them for sale they don't fit any of the stems on my narghile.

That is why I use the tombac bowl pictured in my gallery. It works great and is easy to pack/clean.

Again I don't think that black moassel should be smoked like tombac and I think if you try it that way and then try using the method I talk about you'll see why.

There is a small brass screen that covers the hole that the traditional smokers use or if that is not available they fit a pebble in the hole that allows smoke to pass that stops the tombac from falling down the hole and blocking the stem of the hookah
