Default Can you determine whether it's a fake or not

Hey, don't bash me, but i just got my hands on a KM , but I'm not too sure about its authenticity.You can see its been standing still for a while, because of the dust.. Well long story short, I wouldn't mind if it gave me loads of good smoke being a fake, but my mind would be in peace if i'd know I wasn't ripped off. Here are some pictures, KM fanatics I summon you

Well I guess there were some trust issues buying from a neighboring country, and they are pretty cunning. There is only 1 supplier in my country and it supplies only "Aladdin's"

Abs, dont start up that Fake KM stuff!

Ed, ive never seen a " fake" KM and after looking at your pics.... I still havent.

To clarify, weve seen pipes that have been either intentionally or innocently MISIDENTIFIED as KMs, usually because another egyptian Stem was paired with a KM branded hose, base or ash catcher.

The identifiers are on the tray rest itself. Many brands use a lotus flower, so thats not the determining mark. Its the Arabic KHalil Mamoon script on the tray rest.

So, yes its a KM..... not that it matters it could be pretty much any egy and it would perform pretty much the same.

It's a good pipe and it definitely is real in a physical sense and not an illusory item whatsoever.

Well I took it out for a spin, smoke was great - thick and with flavor. Quite the increase in session length, but that might also be that way because I finally got a phunnel. The stem wobbling is there but it's minimal, but I've heard it's normal in hand made hookahs. Thanks for swift responses dudes

The stem is wobbling because of the gasket. Throw it out and use tape.

We are the exclusive agent for Khalil Mamoon in Canada.
If the name of Khalil Mamoon is in the engine it means its real.
Also the hose should be the original one and not the fake one.
A lot of products are fake in the market so be careful.
shishaplus.ca is out website
thanks

Thats BS. Dont start that "fake" crap here. And if you want to solicit for your business, contact an admin to setup a vendor acct and post in the appropriate section.
