Finding the right shisha pipe
Hookahs have historically been available in three sizes: portable, desktop, and full-sized (small, medium, and large). The height of a hookah isn't a concern when it comes to the smoking experience. A small, portable hookah can provide the same robust taste and large smoke clouds as a full-sized piece.
A mini hookah, for example, is easily portable because it is lightweight and fits in luggage or backpack. The medium-sized hookah can comfortably sit on a small table, nightstand, or desk, allowing you to control the heat without having to stand up to do so. Large models are significantly taller and heavier, meant for serving as floor centerpieces for a group smoking session.
Stainless steel is the ideal material for hookah manufacturing because it is both strong and simple to clean. With proper care, a stainless steel hookah serves your smoking needs for a very long time. When shopping for a hookah, it's important to bear in mind that its cost is typically correlated proportionally to its quality and efficiency. Multiple other materials are used for production and decoration, including glass, polyacetal fiber, wood, and even carbon fiber.
Style and Appearance
Even though hookahs have taken on various forms over time, the baseline of every hookah is the traditional pipe. Its operation retains an adherence to the same basic principle with a central shaft, a smoke cooling vase, and a drawing port always being part of the design.
However, even traditional hookah models have altered to some degree over time. Most of the changes came in additional peripheral parts appended to the design. One such addition is the purge port, the inclusion of which paved the way for hookah modernization and spawned a new wave of designs.
Modern hookahs have many of the same features as their conventional, handcrafted counterparts, including an enclosed chamber, hose and purge ports, and a male-style bowl port. Their architectural variance is what ultimately sets them apart. These are more eccentric than the conventional versions, aiming to apply changes that improve the performance of the hookah and functional efficiency. One of the newer trends has been the inclusion of carbon fiber and magnets, at times, to maximize the products' unique nature and efficiency.
One of the primary differences between modern hookahs and their traditional brethren is the matter of design. Unlike the traditional handcrafted models, the modern ones are machine-made. The formulation process is specifically calibrated and attuned with specific guidelines that ensure an accurate consistency in the hookah's inner workings, still including recessed hose ports, standard bowl ports, and closed-in chambers.
