The Japanese style Silver Flint coals bridge the gap between quick lighting and natural coals. Each briquette is coated with a silver, combustible accelerant that allows hookah smokers to use these "semi-natural" coals with only a cigarette lighter. Give them a couple minutes and some air flow for the best results. Silver Flint hookah charcoals last longer than most quick lighting coals, and are more convenient than traditional wood or coconut coals that require a stove top and 10 minutes of waiting. Though some customers have trouble finding the right balance for these coals, Silver Flint has loyal customer base of experienced hookah smokers. Each box of Silver Flint Coals holds 60 briquettes, enough for approximately 15-20 hookah sessions.
