I don't fit into the stereotypical hippster hookah guy category, but I do like the things every now and then.

I had a buddy who was as into Hookah as I was pipe and then when I was in Spain I got one, sold it before I left, it was nice for smoking indoors. Haven’t smoked one in years though.

The ability to smoke indoors without detroying the saleability of our house is my biggest draw to the hookah.

About to fire up the inaugural smoke in my new Rattray's rhodesian. Smoking Gawith Hoggarth Co. Brown Flake unscented. This is hands-down the prettiest pipe I own. I hope it smokes as good as it looks!

The Rattray's Beltane's Fire rhodesian, henceforth known as “The Precious”, smokes great. Couldn't be happier with the purchase
