Default Stem Help

I bought a sahara cyclone hookah from sahara smoke a couple months ago to begin smoking my first hookah. Ive been reading that KM hookahs are good to get and im looking to improve my hookah a bit. The main part I want to fix is the stem. The SS hookah I have now, the stem is rusting and the layer of metal on the stem is peeling away. Im wondering If a KM stem would fit into the SS vase that I already have. I just need to replace the stem and nothing else so I don't want to buy a new hookah. The SS hookah I have is medium size and its 20'' from base to top of stem.

I'm also looking to make it taller that 20''. Would a longer stem require me to buy a bigger vase to support it? if so, then I'll just have to get the medium size stem.

And what websites are best to buy a stem at?

This is the one I was looking at. Think it would work?

How large is your vase opening? I think most KM stems are 1.75 inches or so on the bottom. You can also get vases that will fit them for only a few dollars from sahara smoke.

There ya go, KMs including Base, Bowl, Stem, Hose, and Cleaning Brush.

However, if you really want just a stem without all the extras,


I've bought 3 KMs from John so far with no problems. He is definitely your go-to guy.

I'm just going to buy a new hookah. My base wont fit, the opening is smaller. This is the one that caught my eye...

The only problem with a multi hose hookah is airflow is a pretty big issue. I don't know if KM multi hoses use ball bearing stoppers when a hose is being used, but if it doesn't you will need to buy or make a plug for the other hose so that you get the full potential of your hookah. If you can live with that it looks like a good little hookah, just remember that you will need to prepare for if you smoke alone (ie a plug or a big wad of wet paper towel for the unused hose port)
