Default KM or farida?

I heard that KMs aren't made with good quality lately I was just wondering what would be the advantage/disadvantage of having a Farida over a KM

They are both Egyptian made hookahs, both with smoke almost identical. With that said I love my Farida and even with having to JB Weld the seal near the hose port from a lot of use it still smokes great. This pipe has outlasted three relationships now.

Nothing I have ever owned has lasted three relationships. Such is the bond of a man and his hookah.

I bought this pipe 7 years ago roughly, and it has been my best friend through the good times and bad, lol.

That Farida is basically his baby. lol

I own 3 Kms and have smoked from a Farida and I personally would buy a Farida before another Km. They smoke the same but seem to be built better.

They are more expensive then a KM and do not come in as many styles. Aside from that none that I can think of. Welds tend to be cleaner compared to a KM.

They may not come in as many styles but they are a lot prettier in my opinion.

I've heard Faridas compared to Hope hookahs more than KMs. Hope is a cheaper brand but still has about the same effect as a Farida.

Price (highest to lowest):

Farida>KM>Hope

Build Quality (highest to lowest):

Farida>KM/Hope (depending on age of KM)

Style/Design (personal opinion):

Farida>KM>Hope

Not being a fangirl or anything...BUT since I got my Farida...It's pretty much all I ever smoke out of. It's solid, small, well made, looks gorgeous, and smokes fantastic....Which is just what I wanted out of a hookah. If you have the cash, I recommend one, definitely. As long as you take care of it, it will last you a very long time.

I have 4 KMs. My first one, I got 8 years ago. Let me tell you, it's amazing, and I never got as much smoke with any hookah like I have with my one and only.

Both are good pipes. PERSONALLY I prefer the Farida over a KM, but either one you purchase you'll be getting a good pipe. So get one that looks best to you.
