That is such a huge bowl! My first thought is that the bowl pictured is intended for use with tombac, which I'm guessing you're not interested in smoking, right? I would recommend you pick up a new bowl. A plain Egyptian bowl should work fine for you as it appears your bowl is a standard female type bowl (meaning it fits around, not in the top of the stem). I suppose you could also choose a Vortex or Phunnel bowl, depending on what brands of tobacco you prefer. There is no reason why you couldn't use that bowl, but a new bowl would use much less tobacco per session and would also be much easier to manage heat with.

That thing is amazing.

I'd have to agree with getting an egyptian bowl. That metal bowl is giant.

depending on the bowls, usually a egyptian only needs a regular bowl grommet, but with a vortex or a phunnel you would probably need a mod grommet which is a thicker rubber piece so it can keep the seal of bowl air tight.

I don't think cutting the bowl would be a great idea. I would just buy an egyptian, or any other bowl for that matter. Because what you have may work, but it will waste a lot of shisha in the process.

Do NOT cut that bowl! That is a tombac bowl. If you dont plan on smoking either tombac or Jurak save the bowl regardless. They are not that easy to find. You can order a different bowl to replace that one to smoke regular the more regular tobaccos like Nakhla or Al Fakher etc.

That. Is. Gorgeous. And only $25?? For that price you can afford whatever crazy markup there is on a regular bowl. I bet there's a vendor that ships to Panama that's cheaper than eBay (don't forget HP members get a discount at many reputable hookah suppliers!)
