Default The Syrian has arrived!!! (lots of pics inside)

Well actually, I've already had it in my posession for about a week. I didn't have a chance to snap pics unitl now due to work/school. Anyway, I bought this 29" Syrian from Jimmy/J and R. Jimmy was great to purchase from. He answered all my questions promptly and helped find the "look" that I was going for. He basically did a custom set up stem for me, and matched it to the style vase I wanted.

I will be doing a review as soon as I get a chance. I've owned/used my 30" Mya for a long time, so I need to give that one it's proper review first (it's only fair). I also believe that just like you can't get to know a person in one week, the same goes for hookahs. So once I get to know her a bit better, then I'll write a review. Here are some pics for now...





The base:





The Custom Stem

The base looks like the paint's flaking off.
The rest of it looks great!

Yes the stem does unscrew into three seperate pieces. Which is cool, because I can reduce the size if I want to smoke out if it in a smaller configuration.

Thanks for the reply Hookah Guru,

I like the vase the way it is. It looks like you have had it in the family for a long time.

It does seem that way doesn't it? It gives it an ancient/authentic look imo...

I wouldn't. It looks like it's already had a couple of years of constant use (in which I'd understand it looking like that). It shouldn't look like that out of the box. "Handmade" should never be an excuse for shoddy workmanship.
I'd sent a pic to J&R and ask them about it.
They'll probably send you a new base.

In the end, I guess all that matters is if you like it. All-in-all it's a really nice looking rig. I hope it smokes as good as it looks.

I've got a rig that is very much like onein the pictures and since I assume they all come from the same workshop I'd bet mine is pretty close to HH's. So, I can say that the workmanship is first rate and it will function as well as anything you could buy at any cost. As the base mine looked that as well and after a year of being used several times a week and many hours soaking in detergents and being scrubbed it looks exactly the same. I have two friends that can report the same as well so i'd say no reason exists to suspect shoddy workmanship.

Thanks for all the kind words guys/gals!

UPDATE:

I found a small chip on the heart of this hookah. This small chip has caused a decrease in smoke thickness compared to my other hookahs. I've kept in contact with Jimmy and he said he would send me a new heart. I knew he would take care of me, as he seems to be a vendor with good business ethics. I can't report back to you guys/gals on how this hookah performs yet due to this leak.

However, once I recieve the new heart, I'll be letting you guys/gals know how it performs and I'll do a full proper review as well...
