I received my custom made mesbah today, and although it is longer than what I had in mind, I’m enjoying it. This mesbah isn’t done the traditional way, the cut and design is different this time around, it is done the turkish way, and the guy doing it is called Sayem (He’s famous amongst the mesabeeh crowd). As you can see from the above picture (and below) the Mesbah has no traditional karkosha on the top bead and was replaced with a karkosha made of the same material used for the beads themselves.
The interesting part is that this Mesbah is new to the scene (although a habbah) because the mesabeeh are usually made of Amber, Misteka or Fatoraan (translation needed), but this one is made of something else. I’m gonna let you think what it made of and see if any of you could get it right. I’m going to update you guys with the missing piece of information soon.
UPDATE #1: Still no one figure it out 🙂
