There are two points I would like to comment on this;

1. You hear less about faults in nour craftsmanship for more than one reason, one reason you may not have realized is simply because there are less nour owners than there are KM owners.

2. This generalization may not be fair to make, but I m going to go ahead and make it. Nours tend to be owned by more experienced smokers and so if there is a fault or a problem they don't need to post about it to get it resolved. Seems like all the newbies go and get KMs because they do get more hype, be it deserved or not. (We all know where I stand.)

I would like to point out that the first nour I ordered was a dud, cracked stem and tray wobbled. This error was from production, not shipping.

^_^ Just some stuff to keep in mind.

I am still waiting until I get a KM to pass final judgment but I have a brass syrian nour and so far it is my favorite pipe. It smokes well and has a beautiful style. There are KM hookahs that I feel rival my nour in these two areas but there are few that rival the look and feel of a well made brass or stainless Syrian hookah. If I could get my hands on an old style KM then we would see who the true victor is...

Bradedup got a really really really really bad dud. I am not sure of anyone else who got someting anything that bad, that being said im sure most people here have noticed the quality of their rigs.

I think these are perfectly fair points - i know you got that shitty nour too, which is too bad.

Still, your nour is the only one I've heard of showing up in that condition, and I usually hear about how experienced buyers would buy nour again, meaning there were probably few or no issues at all. I'm fairly experienced smoker and haven't had asingle issue with Nour, posted about or otherwise. I believe its the same with Photo, though I can't speak for him.

Here is a thread from a few days ago stating a fault in a nour.

They aren't perfect, they have flaws just like every other hookah out there.

Well considering the experience I have had I would buy a Syrian style nour hookah in a heart beat if I had the money or someone was offering.

id just like to point out that as the creator of this thread, I have chosen a nour, my friends and I ranging from the somewhat experienced smoker such as me, to the most inexperienced chose the AF rig that we got over all the other kms in the store.

The AF rig is not only a good hookah, its also a good weapon, and its sexually gratifying.

Syrian Nour are from the the forges of the gods.

Nothing like thick, heavy cast parts as opposed to spun sheet metal parts.
