And you really let that burner run so close to your bed? o.o

It does look like a KM in someway.. was that the bowl you got ? it looks really good and the hose as well.. so in that case man.. u know KM is good pipes by NAME.. a pipe doesnt have to be a KM to work good.. the most pipes from egypt, even no name pipes, works as good as KM..
but on this forum for example.. many people think it's KM or nothing.. I would be very satisfied what the pipe you have right there... no matther what it is

Its really syrian brass or nothing man..lol

but as for this pipe, it actually looks more like a magdy zidan, if you notice the ribbed chamber, thats something on most of the zidan models...

that being said the top section looks more syrian honestly. the lathing work done on the stem and the ice chamber looks like that on a syrian, the egpytian ones tend to be smooth chambers and not decorated.

yes I would have to agree. I am pretty sure it is not a KM. With that being said, still looks like a solid rig.

definitely syrian chiller made by the same company that makes h-s syrians most likely

edit: actually its way better than the h-s ones. if you look at the hose port / purge valve, they are both distinguishable. the h-s chiller i got had what i call "Adaptive" valves; neither was a true hose port, but rather you can screw on a hose port adapter, which made the hookah a completely piece of shit overall. This one does not have that, and looks really nice imo.

the heart chamber though is not a syrian design, its definately designed in the style of MZ's.

the metal also appears to be cheaper at the hear chamber and the ice chamber...looks like a bastard to me.

maybe its another massyrian...

To be blunt it looks kind of cobbled together. The metal has an unfinished and dull appearance to it near the top that the rest of it does not. The stem looks like a hollow shell to me rather than a solid lathed piece of metal. I would bet it's just a no name hookah that someone was trying to pass off as a KM to charge more. the bowl is not KM style. Looks like a modern chinese bowl.

the real question is how does it smoke?

like others have said, km is just a name, if it smokes well, thats all that really matters. it looks like a nice pipe. not overly fond of the hos myself, but meh.

okey so khalil mamoun is stamped on the tray.. thats odd... this is a mix pipe of some sort then... to me it did look like a egyptian pipe but it seems like everyone else was into the syrians ( I really am not familiar with the syrians in any way )..
but then its like half syrian half egyptian pipe I guess...

Thats an egyptian hookah with engraved parts but probably not a KM

EDIT: i just read about the stamp. IF it has a stamp then it is a KM. The style is definately egyptian, although that kind of hose and base is not used in egypt very much.
