What an awesome looking rig! What a great find!

To me, it looks like a really nice Egyptian hookah.

H-C has one with the same stem and another with almost the same looking vase

Stem:

Vase:

Hmmm the stem could be a KM, but don't count me for it lol

Yeah it definitely looks handmade, so far it seems to be a decent smoker the only prob I'm having is the grommet around the hose isn't tight enough and letting a little air in but besides that everything seems fine, the ashtray rattles a little anyone know a quick solution solve it?
And to answer one of my previous post, it came with Nakhla Strawberry and slightly used tub of Fusion Irish cream.

Its most likely cuz the hose is a lil small or something. Just get a wet piece of paper towel and wrap it around your hose end. After that, just attach it to your hose part and your all good.

It rattles cuz of the bubbles, which gets annoying at times lol. But what can calm down the rattling is if you buy a diffuser or you make one :P I've got a homemade one made out of a piece of a soda can and it works wonders ^_^

I think on how to make a homemade diffuser is in the homemade section. dmcwebd is the guy who made up the soda one.

looks like a standard egyptian, should smoke really well.

to find leaks, assemble it like you're going to smoke from it, but no bowl. put your finger over the top of the stem and suck through the hose. it should be air tight. if it's not (you can get suction) then listen for the leaks...

yeah that stem is reminiscent of a km red pear (only blue) to me....

it is very nice looking great choice, the rattling could be fixed...by...well a quickie that probably would work is take a paper towel or two and put it between where the tray rests and the tray itself, should quiet it if not mute it altogether

the release valve has a loose seam, lol.. but it was kind easy to fix just a little goop. If the goop doesn't hold could I actually use silver solder and solder it back?

maybe try some lead free solder also. That will hold for a bit.

The first hookah I've ever smoked from was my friends. It was a Mya Mini. I loved how it smoked the feel, how portable it was. I still have a few extra bucks saved up. So I'm prob going to get one of these now. :P

go for it! i own a mya qt which is incredibly nice. I overpaid by 100% about i know, but i dont mind because the thing smokes like a champ. the only prob is the metal around the downstem is very rough and kinda porous like so its a problem to clean.

but i had a... 16 to 18' egyptian and this thing smokes better than it. i love the thing lol.

plus it comes in that cage, one day during the summer i just wanna walk around with a windcover on it and smoke lol. just around with the hose coming out the side lol. it would be fun and interesting

That looks like a nice Egyptian, but not KM quality. and I would probably not get another hookah, not yet. wait for a couple of weeks, and think it out. unless you are dying to get one, you should think about it for a while

I think I am going to wait a while before investing in another hookah. Besides I want to try some homemade hookah mods, learn the proper way to pack a boil. Even if its a not so great steam from what I've seen the base usually cost as much as I payed for the whole thing including all the extras. So for now I'm happy! :P

I've been hearing great things about the gyro! Which one are you getting cuz I know there is a few of them on H-S. Only thing I'm hearing is that there are probs with the grommets but that's all and I'm not too sure lol
