Re: My new baby ..... KM Tri Metal 40" ... Straight from the KM Shop in Cai
Agreed. All KMs perform the same. The difference is aesthetics. I never cared about aesthetics until recently ... It sets the mood and yeah I prefer smoking out of a mirror-shiny rig with a new hose than smoke at a lounge using an overly used rig that ceased to shine ages ago using a discolored hose.
And btw, price depends on several factors as the shop owner told me, including size, the amount of brass and copper used, and the amount of handmade work done (the more complex the ornaments and patterns, the more it costs). For instance the dual-metal chiller 32" stem costs $15 - stainless steel ash tray included - while my tri-metal 40" stem with much more handy work to it costs $25, ash tray not included.
