Let me ask you this: If you were to apply your skills at making a quality pipe with no aesthetic flaws, how much would you want to make from it? Consider that the KM company only makes around $20-$30 off each pipe, the rest of the cost is shipping, taxes/tariffs, and vendor costs.
your right it would cost a lot to make a pipe but even to do exactly what they do product but do it here in the states it would cost a lot more than it does being imported from egypt. some of the issues are the speed they pump them out i agree but other things truly are just being lazy, like uneven glass and poor solder joints
