It's been a while since we took a look at this list and since we're nearing the end of the year, what better time than now! These last couple years have shown us that hookah pipes will continue to evolve based on trends and listening to customers desires.
This list isn't in any particular order, but it highlights popular models and high sellers ignoring their initial release date. Kick back, scroll, and enjoy.
1. Khalil Mamoon Black Shareef Hookah
Who doesn't like a traditional hookah design with a little modern touch? The Khalil Mamoon Black Shareef has been one our most popular KM hookahs for several years and they've recently updated the base design while improving the exterior coating.
This matte black color doesn't show finger prints and the stainless steel construction aids against rust and corrosion, so it always looks stealthy. Standing at 33", including the bowl, this hookah shaft falls into the average height category but it's slim enough to be a phenomenal new addition to the living room.
2. B2 Hookah Shafts
B2 Hookah Shafts are the results of high level engineering and one man's deep passion for hookah culture. Designed and crafted in California, B2 Hookahs utilize a high grade aluminum metal and precise CNC machinery to create each shaft in small batches.
This modular hookah can be used at 3 different heights and it can be disassembled in a flash thanks to the fine deep threading of the metal. The eye catching fin design of the exterior reminds us of heatsinks on a computer motherboard and they function in a similar way by drawing heat away from your shaft.
Pair this shaft up with a stylish tray like the one B2 has to offer, and slap on a large glass base to create your custom B2 hookah. Did you miss out on their limited edition model?
3. Oduman N3
Handblown in Turkey with super thick glass and high quality stainless comes one of the sturdiest glass hookahs in our collection. The intelligent design of the Oduman N3 model gives it unique features like a threaded washable hose, removable diffuser, and a metal bowl port for tighter bowl fittings.
If you’re really feeling creative, remove the coal tray and bowl port to fill the glass base with fresh fruit and mint leaves. The N3 will arrive with a recessed portion on the underside to allow a LED puck light to fit snugly.
4. Starbuzz Carbine Hookah
HOLY MOLY! This hookah made one heck of an entrance this year and we’re glad to have them on the site. The Starbuzz Carbine hookah is an all-terrain hookah with adjustable legs. You heard that right; ALL-TERRAIN or ADJUSTABLE LEGS (whichever one was more shocking to you).
This hookah packs an insane amount of features into a very unique design. You’ll be able to adjust the height of not only your legs but also the downstem and diffuser to create the perfect flow of air in your session. Whenever it’s time to pass the hose, be sure to check out the (removable) rotating hub that spins a full 360 while you pass.
5. Regal Queen Redwood Hookah
When you’re looking for a unique American made hookah that you can really customize, look no further than the Regal hookah collection. The Queen model and all her curves cut from natural Redwood is our most popular shaft. These hookahs arrive presealed so you won’t spend a lot time maintaining the exterior besides an occasional spot clean.
Each shaft is built with a wide gauge stainless steel downstem that creates a comfortable and less restricted inhale. This year the Regal team released their crown tray that really takes the eye candy level of their shafts to the next level.
6. Shika Legend Hookah
Since we started carrying Shika Hookahs back in 2015, there was always one model that sold out quickly and required several restocks. It was the Shika Electroplated Legend hookah and we’re still restocking it to this day after several tweaks and upgrades. These hookahs are handcrafted in Egypt with brass metal and utilize a wide gauge copper downstem to create jumbo clouds.
Our latest Shika models arrived this summer (unloading that shipment in Texas heat uhhff) and with it we received 3 metallic colors of the Legend: Red, Blue, and Black. We’re gonna need to restock soon and it’s no surprise to us but this popular Shika streak is legen wait for it....DAIRY.
7. Wookah Walnut Hookah
This is the type of centerpiece you would see on “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”....did anyone watch that show?
These beautiful hookahs are handmade in Poland, all the way down to the cut crystal glass bases. The smoking experience is enhanced by a fine tuned V2A stainless steel internal hub that features a matching set of wide gauged hose and purge ports.
We started off with 3 wood colors and 5 crystal bases, but now we offer 11 types of wood grain with 11 crystal bases because of your feedback. Walnut was a part of the original 3 and solidified its spot on our most popular list.
8. Khalil Mamoon Mini Beast
If there’s one thing we’ve learned through all our years of hookah smoking, it's that you should never judge a hookah by it’s size. The Khalil Mamoon name has been around for decades and so have some of their hookah models.
This KM Mini Beast and some of their other smaller hookahs have been the first hookah for so many people that it’s hard to keep track.
They stand 16” tall and work perfect for small area situations like apartments, dorms, or desktops. These hookahs are crafted just like the models used for lounges, so they’re built to last with proper care.
9. Mya Qt Hookah
“My first hookah” - “the smoke shop hookah” - “holy crap all that smoke came from that hookah” The Mya Qt hookah goes by several names and over the many years this design has stood tall atop all of the other MYA hookahs.
This is the type of hookah that you’ll probably find your favorite color in with matching accessories. The compact design stands 10” and it can be broken down quick and easy with a gentle untwist at the threading.
10. Oduman N2 Travel
Another Oduman! If you read #3 we’ll skip the background info and materials on Odumans, so we can talk about why this hookah made this list. Everyone needs a travel style hookah, that has to be at least one of the reasons.
It’s the awesome hookah you bring to your friends house when they don’t have one and you don’t want to break down your larger one. The carrying case is included plus you get a washable hose, and it’s one of the quickest sessions you’ll put together.
That’s a wrap
