Hi Bros,

This ashunnar from, a city that has not many pipe smokers, Dubai.

Nevertheless, the locals here smoke a different kind of pipe called "Medwakh".

Its a narrow pipe with a small bowl good for one or two puffs. The tobacco used gives an unbelievable nic buzz in every drag. No flavor though.

I've been watching many posts for a while and community interests me, and that's why I joined.

Thanks Hermit. Have you seen the pipe that I am talking about. This thing could price upto as good as a high quality aged briar. Use this word "Midwakh" in wikipedia.

Welcome. I met a fellow at the Chicago show that was importing and selling various forms of middle eastern tobaccos. This type was one of them. He says that it is becoming more popular as time passes. Very strong stuff.

Thanks a lot for all of you for the warm welcoming.

Trust that I will enjoy my time here. Dubai is a very busy city and one needs a bit of rest and relaxation at the end of day.

That is always fulfilled with a draw on a good pipe. And all of that becomes better when it is done with people who share the same like all of us in this forum.

Wish y'all good times.

RE: Dokha (the tobacco for the Medwakh)



Thinking on this, I bet all those who smoke tambolaka, 5 brothers, and GH & SG ropes will be after some of this stuff soon, if they weren't already!

Dr. T,

Actually smoking it is not really bad. Especially for cigarette smokers. I know loads of people who quit the habit by beginning with this then gradually smoking it occasionally, socially, or don;t anymore.

However, worth keeping it in a collectors bunch also.

PostSubject: Jealousy   Mon Jun 10, 2013 4:14 pm

Actually, I feel a bit jealous of you guys. Y'all got a variety of tobacco to try out there. Here in Dubai, we only have the ready packed ones and they're numbered.

Captain Black, Colts, Larsens, Riff, Davidoff, Mac Baren Amphora and a few others. And tobacco importation needs a permit that costs loads of money

Excited that I am visiting Canada in July, am gonna try out as much blends as I can.

And continuous thanks again to all who've been greeting me and will greet me.

Nice to meet you, welcome to BoB.


Most images on the net don't give a true idea to the size of Medwakh pipes, have a butchers: http://m.gulfnews.com/polopoly_fs/1.1097477!/image/3875312799.jpg_gen/derivatives/box_310/3875312799.jpg
