I love my KM with all of its flaws, it means there all different then any other one on the maker. it is unique and one of a kind. it smokes great.. and well if that sums it up i think its perfect the way it is. wouldnt change it for the world
Extrapolation much? That's not even quality for the money spent.

Edit: It seems like a lot of the interpretation was that I expect an immaculate protect. I don't expect a perfect looking hookah or one that looks like all the others, I just prefer not seeing spot of melted solder on my hookah, mismatched band alignment. Hell there is even an incomplete design on mine. It is just frustrating to me that poor quality can be so easily justified by "hand made quality". Before I got into hookahs (ie before I was 18) I associated the term handmade with something that was made with precision, and as clean as humanly possible; basically top notch stuff with endearing imperfections. Flaws are to be expected as people cannot create objects with the same ability as a machine.
Another occurrence in this thread seems to be that I am looking for machine made products when really I have always preferred handmade quality. I just feel like the people at KM are sloppy, meaning they don't seem to have a concern whether or not they've made a mistake.
Argh I don't know I'm just ranting.
Lastly I hope you read that with a calm narration as I am not angry nor am I trying to project being hostile towards anyone.
In reality I am just disappointed.
