Assuming the defects don't affect smoke quality, defects aside, they are both equal IMO. My KM Exotica and my Nour Syrian both have some pretty ugly welds, but they are both airtight, purge well, and draw perfectly. They are, afterall, handmade. I like having a variety of KM's, Syrians, Mya's, etc. They all provide slightly different characteristics, but all smoke well.
