The tri-metal revolution now comes from Magdy Zidan. The three metals are crafted masterfully with a great attention to detail. The brass hub is oxidized and the copper center is impressed with a fish scale pattern. The jumbo Arabic script glass is a black matching the oxidized portions of the stem. The down tube is a clean singular stainless steel tube. The long handle MZ hose and the copper tray bare the Magdy Zidan signature. This pipe is made with pride and is 100% Egyptian.
