Go with a vendor that is active here. You want to request that they visually inspect the hookah and make sure its doesn't look too "Hand Made". KM has had some QC/QA issues that pop up where the welds are messy and the plating isn't well done.
Ice chambers are a hotly debated item. They look super cool but as for function, the jury is still out. They are not a negative by any stretch, but may not cool the smoke as much as KM would like you to believe.
All in all, find a KM that you like the look of and go with that.
The not too hand made part is clutch, you don't want you hookah showing up looking like a drunk guy made it.
