Default Real or Fake Khalil Mamoon?

Hey guys new here! So i got this km about month or two ago, and i felt like it was great, but i came across something that made me thing it wasn't real. It is a 42 inch pear km, and on top and bottom of the pear it has a silver lining that goes around looks like 2 pieces have been sautered or welded together. well here is some pictures let me know what you think!

Real for sure, all KMs are handmade and the weldmarks come with it, they are what make our hookahs unique.

Nice looking rig. Definitely a KM. The weld marks are just an idiosyncracy of your fine hand made Hookah.

Definitely a real KM stem. One of the easiest ways to tell is to look at the tray rest because ALL KMs have the same or similar flower design with Khalil Mamoon stamped/etched in Arabic. All KMs have weld marks like the two you mentioned, that's a good thing because that's an indicator that your stem was handmade, all hand made stems will have weld marks.

You have a great stem there, take care of it and it will last you ages.

I was actually wondering the same thing. It wouldn't surprise me if there were fakes, especially in Egypt, but I've never actually seen or heard of anyone reporting fakes like I have with Nakhla and AF, especially AF.

i think their might be now... two smoke shops here have the same line of hookahs, both claiming they are KMs. i showed one owner my KM and he thought mine was fake. after showing him a few pics and educating a little he now believes he sells fake KMs. they come in designs similar to KM(butterfly, pharonie, exotica) and come to him in KM bags with KM bases and KM hoses... but these hookahs are mega fakes. im going to try to see if i cant get a few pics of these.

Hey guys, thank you for all the replies. I appreciate it, the reason I was wondering if it was fake or real was because i recently heard the place I got it from "thehooka" had sold a couple of fake ones to a couple people. They were saying it had all the weld marks everywhere on the stem and in the heat the hooka fell apart in palm springs. Thats burning hot weather. Also thehooka has knockoff KMS, but they ask you or point it out so i just needed to double check and see what you all think. THanks!
