Default Hookah from India.

A friend of mine recently went to India for christmas break and said he would bring me back a gift. This piece he said he picked up in a small city in Northern India where they claim the hookah pipe was invented. What truth lies in that statement I'm not entirely sure of, but this is one beautiful pipe.

The whole pipe is metal except for the downstem which is made of wood and the hose which is tubing with wood tips. The body of the pipe and the bowl are all hand engraved with scenes of peacocks and flowers. The pipe seperates into 4 seperate pieces. Bowl, Stem, Vase, and Base. The hose is not removable and the stem further seperates where the downstem connects so the wood stem can be changed if needed.


I havent smoked out of it yet, it will honestly probably remain a showpiece for my living room as I dont want to get it dirty at all. *It's truly a unique and beautiful hookah.

He also said he picked me up a pack of shisha that was made from tobacco grown on the slopes of the himilayas (mt.everest) but it got taken away in customs in China when he was on his way home

If you're anything like me you'll set it up as decoration at your place and it will eventually get to you that you've never smoked out of it. So you may as well do it now when you first get it.

Didnt come with any grommets, though it wouldnt be hard to add one to the bowl at least...thats the only place that would need one really.

i think i could probably put one of my regular bowls on it if i wanted to, but i think this one is gonna be a showpiece.

yeah something i would keep on a shelf because it just looks that good. before i found this site i really wanted a hookah like this because i thought they were going to be awesome, but bradedup and DMC's video reviews on hookahs like that changed my thinking, and made me join this site, lol. if i get some extra cash i still might get one as novelty decoration.

This a "Moghul" Hookah, its for smoking Tombac not regular moassal.

It doesn't need grommets. They didnt use grommets even 100 years ago, if anything a wet cloth.

Man the problem with all these really nice and luxurious looking hookahs is that they all smoke like shit. I'd love to have functional art for once, unlike the sultan

Please remember, if you do smoke out of it, don't waste your time with "regular" shisha tobacco, that is to say Moassal or molasses....none of that.

If it don't say Tombac on it, then don't bother smoking it out of that.
Also its hard to get the right amount of water in that so it doesnt go in your hose but is still enough to cool down.

lol, you guys are funny.

No problem with the thread-hijack, i'm a bit of a grammar nazi myself sometimes.

No, I haven't smoked out of it yet, I don't have any Tombac for it, the closest thing I have is unflavored salloum tobacco that I have yet to try...for those in the know, would that work?

I'm still hesitant to smoke out of it...maybe sometime when I run out of the other 104 flavors I have on hand...*

I saw that today, just dont have the extra cash to buy any at the moment, considering i just bought two new glass phunnel bowls and like 17 different shishas...that and i dont know how often i'll actually use it...if someone has a small bit that they'd like to send me i may be convinced to try it and let you guys know how it was...

for now i gotta do a couple reviews of the new Java stuff i got in the mail yesterday.
