Re: A few hookah questions i've been dying to ask.
there are so many more egyptian hookah brands than km and mz. el ashrey, shishaking both make amazing pipes as well, as well as so many more.
the answer, theres very little difference. the thick gauge that km has can be seen on many "generic" egyptians. its all hype. km uses cheap stainless steel on many of the cheaper hookah (exotica, pear, ssr, etc). however some of the KM stylings are really awesome and use copper/brass as well.
all mzs are made of cheap 108 stainless steel. almost all "generic" egyptians use the same metal.
