I have read all the comments on this page and all are true to they own experiences, but i would just like to add, i have the tri-metal and the stem quality is amazing, but the base is so thin and lite, it seems it will break whenever i put it down, i have to say the base is of the crappest quality i have come across its worse then some chinese bases.

I have never smoked or owned a syrian but i would like it to be my next purchase as they do look solid and i like the tighter pull as many people have mentioned they have, i hate the lake of resistance on my KM's and it dont feel like im smoking.

Sir if you close the door on an audi a8 an close the door on any hyundai, you will notice the difference i speak of in that reference.

as to the rest of your reply, well KMs are all the same in the middle and the heart for the most part. There was really more to what I was getting at then just stem decoration.

I bought a cheap nour, my inexpensive KM was more expensive than it, and I was more pleased with the nour.

i assume youve never been in the new genesis but i digress.

the trimetals have brass hearts. some models have brass cores.

the nour you have, was sold for 100 bucks on hookahcompany, 91 at **********. i dont really consider that cheap. thats on par with any of the trimetal kms. you haven't seen cheap nours because i don't think anyone bothers carrying them

Had that little one. I wasn't really a fan, the larger one that photolinger has is, in my opinion, a lot better. I sold the little one for like $40 bucks (no one wanted it at the time) and it was practically new. I should have waited till everyone started hyping syrian hookahs and made a killing on it

Yeah, i get what you're saying. i dont really have 80 to spend willy-nilly. Sorry no one wanted your nour. I liked my bf's nour (the one i linked). imo, i dont like the way brass looks.. but if it's better quality, then it is what it is.

Sorry if i got you mad :] please dont be mad at me...?

I own a nour and KMs.

I have never recieved a defective KM in my numerous orders. My only nour order was a manufacturing defect. That sets them back in my book.

My KMs have sturdier trays and glassware as well as thicker gauge.

My KM trimetal is much heavier/sturdier feeling than even the solid brass nour stem. I have the same SSR stem that photolinger has and it is much lighter and weaker feeling. Purge is easier on both my KMs than my nour.

My opinion: KM > Nour.

I got the same KM as you use in some of your vids the blue vase, but the base is so light weight, and feels cheap to me

But mine and yours are probably gonna be different

i want to say again, my nour was 80 from john. my nour that is taller than that 24.

bradedup's nour sucks at purging. i saw the vid. mine isnt that bad, look at my vid. it takes a sec longer but the point is it still purges completely.

my Alfakhnour purges better than my KM, my glyph purges better than my km (...it does have 2 valves though lol) and both of em smoke better.

i can respect bradedup's opinion and really anyone else who's tried both, as i stated earlier is most people here havnt tried much else.

My opinion is shared by a few others on this forum that have smoked both as well, syrian brass > km.

by the way, i feel some of you dont really get that i hav a very joking attitude on this site, so when i say shit like break your km and say km fanboys, you need to friggin take a chill pill. i dont see tangiers smokers get all up in arms over dunk's opinion of tangiers fanboys...

I need to try one of those Syrian hookahs. BTW, I really appreciate photolinger's input about Nour hookahs. I learned a lot from him.

I really dont give a shit about my nours purge and I prefer my nour ashtray over the km... the nour ashtray has more detail on it and screws on so the ash tray doesn't move all over the place like my km ice


Nours are more solid piece but does not have as good of a pull as a km

both great pieces

to each its own

any km, you're buying quality when you buy the brand... buy the one you like the best, find one that looks sweet and post a pic or vids using it and show us your smoke
