Your probably asking yourself this question before making a purchase. Why buy Egyptian made pipe over a modern Chinese pipe. Well there are many things you need to consider. Here at Oxide Hookah we only sell the best quality products around. We wont put up anything on our site that wont satisfy you....quality really matters to us.
Egyptian pipes are made solely where hookah/shisha smoking originally became a cultural tradition....Egypt!!! Top brands such as Khalil Mamoon & Shika are made out of only the best and safest materials to smoke from. They are made out of brass and are either welded hand made (Khalil Mamoon) or perfected by machine (Shika). Egyptian pipes are also built to last for a lifetime so you don't have to keep replacing parts like you normally would for a modern pipe. Smoke quality is also amazing with Egyptians because of how the inner stem is designed. The inner stem is wide in diameter therefore it'll be an easier pull when inhaling and you'll also notice a difference in smoke quality including the amount of clouds produced. Also something you want to consider is how resistant your pipe is to water. Brass tends not to rust while aluminum or stainless steal eventually become corroded which are usually the materials made in China.
Modern pipes usually are the opposite of Egyptians which I discussed. They tend to be made out of cheap materials, poor design and very little durability. Even if you are a beginner smoker don't buy something that you eventually overtime have to replace and contains unsafe materials, buy a high quality pipe that you will only have to purchase once and smoke safe....your health comes before cost.
