Re: New Hookah Time
KM, Magdi Zidan and Nour are all great traditional hookahs. KM and MZ are both Egyptian. MZ will generally be more expensive. There are different qualities of KM's including regular stainless steel and tri-metal which are brass/copper construction.
Nour are Syrian hookahs and have solid brass/copper construction on the stem so they have amazing durability and are anti-microbial.
To be perfectly honest the current inventory of KM's that you will find online will have similar quality to many non-branded Egyptian pipes. Social Smoke makes a good Egyptian hookah and Hookah-Shisha usually has good quality but both their prices are a little high in my opinion.
You can check out our site we carry a solid copper/nickel finish egyptian model (The King) that has a modular designed stem so that it can be taken apart and transported easily. It can also be smoked as a 23" and 30" hookah. In my honest opinion it is one of the best hookahs on the market from any retailer and any brand.
Hope this helps.
