Default Chipped my new egyptian bowl :(

so i was setting up the KM to do a review for the contest and everything looked good so i go to the tripod to hit record when i hear the tray *CLING* then a *THUMP* on the floor.. i look and theres the bowl. i removed the foil and tossed the shisha (didnt wanna risk any little debris in it) and this is what i saw..





..i just got this bowl yesterday too (came with my americana) but im just glad it wasnt my vortex or phunnel bowl lol .. im sure this bowl will still work but since this is my first dropping and chipping of a bowl i wanted to post it up and share lol.

Those Egyptian bowls are pretty brittle. They chip and break if you look at them crosseyed.

Looks like it will still work if you don't have anything else. I've got a couple bowls that are chipped all to hell and back and still smoke fine.

I agree that a chipped bowl will work just fine. Just make sure you have a little extra foil to cover up the edge where it is chipped

Thats just a flesh-wound I wouldn't worry about it. I'm sure it will smoke just fine.

If the edge is rather sharp, as broken ceramics tend to be, borrow an emory board from a female friend, or just buy one for yourself, they are cheap, and file the sharp edge down slightly to round it a bit so it won't cut you or cut the foil when you try to tighten it over the lip of the bowl. Otherwise, it should work fine still. Smoke happy.

Definitely good thing it wasn't your phunnel or vortex. Easily replaceable if needed, but should smoke just fine.

Very sad...I dropped my Egyptian bowl that I got with my KM onto the concrete floor of our basement. To my surprise it didn't break or even chip but the next day when I went to use it, I put it on my hookah and the whole bottom part just broke into pieces. I miss that bowl

Is it new? Contact the vendor. Maybe it chipped during the shipping process hehe

I had my Egyptian chip that same way, its all part of the smoking process. Acceptable accident.
