Default KM Amoura Vs. KM Kafae

Anyone have any input? They are about the same price after shipping. Does one smoke better over the other? Does anyone have any complaints about either of these two hookahs or are the both about the same? Any input would be great in helping me make a decision between the two. Thanks.

all KM steel hookahs will smoke the same, its really how much you like the exterior when it comes to them.

Thanks for everyone's input so far. Why do you recommend a syrian hookah over an egyptian hookah coldgr33ntea? I'm not quite sure what the differences are between all the different origins of hookahs. I guess that may have been a better place to start when trying to decide upon a new hookah, what the strong points are of each type of hookah (syrian, egyptian, etc). This may be a very broad question but if someone doesn't mind explaining what those strong points are that would be a great help!

Well, syrian hookahs are made out of brass. This may seem like a small thing to you, but if you were to picl up a KM stem and a syrian stem, you would notice a huge difference in their weight, the syrian is much much heavier and sturdier than KMs. Also, the brass stays cooler, longer so you get smoother smoke. The thing that some people do not like about syrians is that they have a slightly tighter pull than KMs. Although, some people, including myself like a slight resistance while pulling, otherwise it doesnt feel like your smoking. My syrian hookah has survived many falls off of tables and chairs that landed it on the stem that goes into the water. Most other hookahs would bend from a fall like this.
Remember, this is just my opinion and if you want to get a KM, go for it, im just reccomending something that i think you would be happier with.

Here is my hookah

and here are all the other syrians

good luck and happy smoking

I have a Nour syrian I picked up from eric....and the stem is nice and heavy as mentioned....I think the syrian has a comparable draw to the KM

Sorry all for such a change in topic. Still, if anyone has any opinions on either of those two hookahs or a KM vs a Syrian any input would be really appreciated. I'm having the toughest time deciding on a new hookah, especially since I'm a broke college student. I really need this one to last me a while and to be something that I will really enjoy smoking out of.

Default Re: KM Amoura Vs. KM Kafae

ok i can try to do this objectively.

lets start by asking a few questions.

do you like tall or short hookahs.

do you like a specific colored stem or an accessory that has a color on the stem.

do you want something that pours out smoke or do you want something w/ a tad of resistance.

do you want like etchings on the stem, designs etc or do you just want rounded smooth shapes?

that should help narrow it down.

Alright that would be great. I already have like a 22" hookah so I was looking for something a little taller. The hookah I have has a pretty tight pull so something with an easier pull would be better. The one I have already isn't all that authentic..it's one of those machine made ones from China, so I was definitely looking for something more authentic. I don't really have that much preference in color as long as it looks good and is "masculine". (I don't know if masculine was the right word in this situation, but for lack of better words I used it) Thanks all for the help!

ok. most syrian hookahs are between 24-30 inches. if thats an issue, then you may go for a taller km, but just note, you'll be clenaing it in your bathtub if its taller than 30.

as for manly, well, the pears arent all manly looking, not calling them overly feminine, just not manly.

as for some syrian etchings, a lot are floral....

basically, ima point you at a camilla nour, an alfakher rig, a glyph hookah.

or the two km's you wanted.

Not all KMs are light...In fact I recall hearing that the Kafae is a brass KM that's plated. I have a brass KM that's heavy as hell.

That being said I have an (lightweight) Amoura and the thing smokes like a champ.

Get either, it's a KM you'll be happy either way dude.

I'm pretty sure if you hit up the video review section, you can see quite a few Hookah reviews. I know for sure there are at least two KM vs Nour videos.

Thanks all for your help. I ended up getting a 35" KM ice but I think my next hookah will probably be a brass nour so I have a nice egyptian hookah and a nice syrian hookah.
