Default Why is no one carrying this rig?

I found a wholesale site yesterday.... and they offer this.



I cant say that I have seen this model offered by the vendors...... maybe this one is a trcky one to ship due to the stem?

WOW! That is a pretty "RAD" looking hookah! I wonder how to tell if you have enough water in it? Must have a line in there somewhere? Looks like it all screws together too. How tall is it?

I see a few issues with the thing... mainly..

RUST


But as SamB said, how would you know the right H2O level? The all metal bowl may burn shisha....ect, ect, ect...

But it is a nice rig, looks like a cross bwt a syrain stem and a decortaive piece like an urn.

I doubt the thing is very stable, fill level is a problem and it looks poorly made to me. Neat design concept (except that long tube thing) in any case.

Hajo , that long tube is how they used to smoke Nargileh's in middle east a few decades ago. Its the traditional hose :P wired and unconvinient huh.
If am not mistaken the hoses we have 2day are the evolution of the last 10-20 year in iran and turkey.

Well in the picture they have both a long tube and a hose so I presume that the hose is supposed to attach to it. On older narghiles i've seen long tubes made out various materials but i've never seen that system used with a modern hose. In any case, I have seen (used to have) leather hoses over a hundred years old with wooden tips so while the braided hoses are new hoses in general are not.

You had a hose that was 100 years old? Thats awesome, what did you do with it?

I used to but it was lost along with a pretty amazing collection of antique narghiles many years back during a move and the insurance company cheated me although that is to be expected.

I good friend of mine owns a narghile from the 1860s and the leather hose is still in working condition if you are careful although it doesn't look very good. Of course that sort of thing is rare and it requires the hose being cared for by experts from day one on.

That is a killer looking hookah. I would like to try one before I bought one.

If anyone will get one, I think it will be Lake. It is so different from the rest of the hookahs I have.
