Never knew the name but the hookah bar that was by my house uses them. They cost dirt cheap, at least that is what the owner told me. And yes they are ugly, cheap knock offs is what they are.

Hopefully for that price you won't get one filled with sand to make it feel heavy.

Looks alright to me. The only thing I dont really care for is the black on the vase, it would be cool if someone used a stained glass instead of a painted vase.

Are we sure its a KM knockoff? KM hookahs have a standard egpytian look. They arent the only egpytian hookah and they aren't the original makers....

photo makes a good point. Is every contemporary Egyptian shisha produced from now on gonna be considered a KM knock-off? And since when is KM the standard bearer? KM may be all the buzz here in the US, but from what I gather, in Egypt it just another manufacturer.

i think it looks pretty good, i wouldn't pay 100 for it.
the stem/tray look cheap.
i think it would be way better if it had a clear base.

Can someone confirm that Thamesh is Arabic for "alligator"?

Also, I don't think they're too bad based on looks. I think that slapping a KM price on one is a little speculative based on the fact that few people have tried them, but HC is a business and needs to make money...

I know that this hookah means alligator in arabic but I thought it was Tamseh, any other arabic speakers?

it says in the description that it has 18k gold accents on the base... and the KM hose alone tacks on like 15 extra bucks. I dont think its THAT bad of a deal, as long as it is well crafted.

if i had the money i would be on it like white on rice lol its a damn good looking rig and i would imagin it smokes like a champ and think if their useing 18k gold just on the base do you really think it could be that bad. i would imagin the quality is no worse than a km
