Shika V4 Hookahs

Shika Electroplated Series
One of the quickest selling models that we had in our first shipment was the long Electroplated model, and with this newest shipment we received a restock on that model plus a few more colors. This isn't the only model that has received an electroplated finish, as Shika has added a couple new electroplated hookahs to their arsenal. The Shika Scandallo hookah (pictured above) is one of the newest members, and it displays subtle flares and slim engravings to the hookah shaft. This model along with the rest of the electroplated series, introduces new colors to the jumbo glass base options, washable hookah hoses, and coal trays. If you're looking for a shorter electroplated hookah with some style, be sure to check out the new Shika Mini Totti Beast and Mini Zoba.
Shika V4 Brass Hookah Collection
As you look at this glorious shot of the Lannister hookah stem, think about how much work Shika is putting into their Hookahs. We've seen models from Shika with this type of detail, like the Shika Cersie or the Shika Tyrion, but this time around there are some noticeable differences. They've added some new patterns like the heavy cross patched design of the Lannister, and there are some stylish uniform lines that can be seen all throughout the shaft. You may notice that there are more detailed ridges and ledges, these can be found resting on the underside of the central hub and each solid brass orb. We believe their main goal was to leave no blank space on the shaft, and they succeeded in doing so.
One of our favorite models from their collection was the zombie slaying Shika Hilal. This super solid hookah contained a crescent moon as the main focal piece, and it was of course surrounded by a great amount of hand carved detail. After taking a looking at the Hilal, we didn't know where Shika would go next, and now we present to you the Shika Farouk hookah. Once again we see the crescent moon as the focal piece, but this time around it has a new angle and it features a lot more of that classic hand etchings. The Farouk model also shows off their new Egyptian bell glass base, and this new glass addition contains an array of gold accents.
The Shika Brass & Wood Combo
This right here is a first in the Hookah industry, a brilliant combination of brass and exotic wood that is simply titled, the Avatar. The Shika Avatar hookah, is a model guaranteed to receive a few double takes as the lighting hits the midsection, allowing the great detail to shine through. Shika uses a couple types of wood for this center piece, so expect a variation within the shade of the center piece. The Avatar also receives more of that quality attention to detail throughout the entire shaft, and if you look closely you'll notice the subtle carvings on the top and bottom caps of the wooden section.
New Shika Accessories
If you have ever received a solid brass Shika hookah, then you'll understand how serious they are about the coal tray craftsmanship. Just like their hookahs, most of the Shika trays are created with the use of solid brass, and a skillful hand to hammer out all of the designs. Once again preparing you for the zombie apocalypse, their latest batch of trays utilize more of the brass metal, resulting in a heavier component piece.
