Description

Medwakh pipes (also spelled Midwakh), are typically of Arabian origin.  Dokha is a finely ground arabic product that is organically grown in the mountainous regions of the Middle East.  Only fresh water and desert sunshine, with absolutely NO additives, preservatives, dyes or flavourings being added at any stage of the production process. This all natural Arabic tobacco is then smoked through a Medwakh. The bowl of a Medwakh pipe is typically smaller than that of a traditional Western tobacco pipe. It is usually loaded by dipping the bowl into a container of Dokha tobacco.

The first Medwakhs (Midwakhs) were crudely carved from animal bones, often goats’ bones, or moulded from clay by Shepherds tending their flock back in the 14th century… Since then, a lot has changed but the basic design still shines through. Pipes are often still hand carved but the materials used and the Artisan craftsmanship has much improved over the years!  Some Medwakh pipes are more lavishly engraved, often with brass inlays, hand painted in a variety of colours or have gem stones added as a status symbol.

When you blow air into the pipe, make sure that your lips are a few inches away from the tip. You don’t want any of the dokha’s resin to get into your mouth or tongue. Repeat this step until you find no particles coming out of the bowl. Olive oil can be used to make your Medwakh shine.
