Default Re: Hookah Stem

I've speculated that the nut soldered on is a cheap way of re-enforcing the end of the stem. Most Egyptians...including MZ and KM are made with copper line (like water line and gas line in your house) that has had solder smeared over it to make it look like its stainless steel.

The end of that tube can fairly easily become dinged in or mashed otherwise.
