Posted:Not to sound cynical, but I thought the definition of a hookah was that it didn't use water. I might be wrong, though. Those actually looked pretty cool, though. Kind of a Hookah/bong hybrid. I bet they would rock to smoke out of. You get the best out of both types of devices.

I have a solid, hand-carved brass real-deal hookah that is 3 1/2 feet tall with 4 cloth hoses that start at the base. The bowl on top could easily fit close to an ounce of, erm, tobacco (cough ) in it. It is made to be smoked on constantly. You pack it, light it, and then 4 people smoke on it as fast or slow as they like. It stays lit, and the entire piece holds the reserve smoke, so almost none is wasted. I would sell you mine (it's mostly a novelty item for me now) and ship it for dirt cheap, but I don't think I could clean it well enough to pass customs.

If I had to make a guess as to where to buy one, I would search antique shops and ethnic markets. They are still popular smoking devices for people of Middle-Eastern descent.

FREE TIBET!!! (with the purchase of a 44 oz. drink)What do you want to be when you grow up?I want to be a kid again!I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.~~~J~~~

Posted:Do you guys like, not have head shops? They're pretty ubiquitous 'round here. Try import companies that deal with a lot of indian brass work, alternately, if you have a design and the dough, talk to a laid back glass blower or potter. *shrugs* Wish I could help you more then that. It'll be worth the effort when you finally get it tho *grins*

There are no obstacles only challenges.
