Hookah Prices

Question

I've seen Nima tweet up a storm about these AK-47 Hookahs and I fell in love I really want one even if it's just for novelty, but obviously I have to import it which I'm good with but even from your side $180 for a hookah is quite expensive right?

The first time someone showed me an AK47 hookah, it was my Liberian friend. He showed me the work of this artist who had gone to Liberia and was helping them convert their AK47s (from their civil war time) into pieces of art or practical items. 

 

I doubt that the ones you see on the market now are made out of actual Ak47s. They are probably mostly manufactured in China. If so $180 is way too much for them. I would much rather buy an old AK47 and retrofit it myself into a hookah ...

 

aha.....I just got an idea for a project and and a detail article / video for hookah.org :)

I personally would not buy this for $180. For that price I could get a quality KM, a kilo of shisha and some coals. Perhaps if this hookah was around $75-90 but it would need some good reviews. I prefer functionality over aesthetics in my hookahs

flat out don't get this. It's a waste of money and all it will be good for is putting up on a shelf. I promise the materials used are not well suited against rust like a KM or starbuzz stem.

I wanna import myself a decent hookah if I had to convert what I paid for to dollar mine was 45 dollars haha but I just love the way it looks.. and yes I call mine the 360 haha because it rotates nice for social smoking because they don't fall or rock just spin

I'd go for something more traditional I hate all the modern designs I'd rather have a km

yeah its not "modern design" though, it's, IMO, tacky.

Chinese hookah with a modern chamber and narrow downstem..... everything I've put forth into my hookah education over 7 years steers me away from those three things.

 

It's your money but damn is this company ripping off hookah hobbyists that don't know a thing or two about pipes. I feel bad for people who get dooped into buying this piece of crap. Any enthusiast will tell you don't get this pipe or the other gun one. If you like mod hookahs Sahara smoke is the top of the American market. Otherwise Nargilem and dschinni of Germany get great reviews.
