Default Little Persian store

So i went into this little Persian market in the town next to mine to see if they sell shisha and i was surprised to find out they sell nakhla 250g for $8 and a box of 3kings for $12. So i picked up a pack of double apple.

My question is, is it better to smoke Nakhla out of a phunnel bowl or out of an egyptian bowl?

Being that Nakhla is more of a dry tobacco I would go with an Egyptian Bowl. But a funnel would work too

I get great results from both. I use the phunnel for the most part but have a Lebanese porcelain that also works great. Use the phunnel only if you plan to smoke more than an hour or with friends. Now with the phunnel I notice that the session picks up and gets even better when I start on the second set of coals.

I'd say both egyptians and phunnels work just as great. But through my experience, Egyptian bowls smoke better with Nakhla

They will both smoke finely. Egyptian is recommended though, because nakhla is pretty dry. and 12 bucks for 3 kings?! that's a deal compared to most of the prices now...

i have a question about the products you bought. Who is the distributor of the Nakhla you bought? It should be Karabetian in LA. If it is Delta Trading the product may be expired. Also, do you know if the 3 kings are real or knockoffs? I'd just like to know and also, you may not know and it would be a good idea to find out. Hopefully you've got the good stuff though.

theres a shop in the valley (encino area) that has real 3k for 10 bucks a box for 33mm ones. definitely a steal now im smoking outside again

12 bucks is still an awesome price, cant find it cheaper than 15 locally for me (the place in the valley is 30mile drive sigh)

Heh are you talking about that huge Middle Eastern (sorry I forgot the name!) market that sells coals and a whole mess of Nakhla? Lol I might know what your talking about.

Yup they WERE $10...Now they are $12.

BTW, I'd totally go by ************* aka john's advice.

I don't know who their distributer is but it was in what looked like a real nakhla box. And for the 3kings, they looked real. They were in the 3kings box and said they were made in holland.

The Nakhla I am referring to is legit, only it's old if it's from Delta Trading Co. You should check it out. As far as 3kings, post some pics and we'll be able to tell, post pics of the box inside and out.
Thanks
John
