Default NOOOOO!!!

So I just got a beautiful new KM Hafa last Thursday from patelbadboy2006 and I Love it!

...loveD it.

I'd just finished smoking a bowl with a few friends and we were watching TV while it cooled off in front of us, another mate pulled up outside and I jumped up and across the room to look out the window...

...and smashed my brand new pipe off the coffee table and showered everyone in water, glass and ash.

Luckily the stem was fine, but it had broken straight through the base

The shattered pieces:




Needless to say my friends were very supportive and thought of many hilarious jokes...lovely.

So I ordered this one straight after:
http://www.hookahshop.co.uk/base-bot...ue-p-1562.html

Its not a KM but itll do :P It'll match my turquoise nammor at least.

Just wondering if anyone knows anywhere/anyone in the UK who could sell me a nice KM glass.

that sucks but thats a case in point why to only put very small and/or stable hookahs on tables

as to it not being km glass, km only makes the metals and buys the glass from one of the few glass manufactures over there then paints them so it doesnt matter really thats it not "KM"

It happens to everyone, at least once, if it hasn't happened to any of you yet, then you just wait, ill go over there and break it myself! (just kidding)

The acid stained glass vases arent always stable, I know of a few american companies that sell KM bases, but if you havnt bought it yet, consider searching a tad bit longer, and fyi, the Sahara bases are pretty solid if you like any of the designs (my favorite is the clear large dish vase) they may ship to england, but not entirely sure...anyhow sorry about your base :/

Last time i ordered 1 day which was pretty fast, but i dont know if that was cos i had a review that said they were crap so they improved for me.

I had one break in 2 days of getting it, so a week is a long time in my world

HOOKAH ETIQUETTE from the website of thehookah.com
Quote:
* Never light your cigarette with the coals on your hookah.

* Never put your hookah on a height (I know this could be a little inconvenient if you dont have a large hookah, but a hookah is supposed to rest on the ground, not on a table).

* Never pass the hookah directly to another person. Always first put in down and let the next person pick it up.

* Don't smoke anything but tobacco out of your hookah.
HOOKAH ETIQUETTE

When I first got involved with the Hookah I looked up any and all information about it that I could find. This was one of the first things I learned.

As for your vase, I would really recommend Hookah John. Even though it may cost a bit more. Then again Hookah Royal might a good for you too.

I did the same thing but up until now I havent really seen the point...dont get me wrong im a big one for tradition, but where i usually smoke its just easier to put it on a table. In this case it would have actually saved my base if the damn thing was on the floor :P

See there is a reason for certain traditions.

Dude I think it's about time we state to NEVER buy a KM frosted vase, literally all the frosted vases I've seen are 4x weaker and either break like nothing or crack after not many uses. Junk...

man that is horrible, I mean you just smoke your first bowl and reached hookah nirvana and bam... its all gone... I would be so pissed.

by the way if you want to put a larger hookah on a table you could get a styrofoam cooler and put you hookah in it surrounded with ice packs... It stays cold all night and not to mention its not falling over unless the whole cooler goes down... Not that this is how its supost. to be done but that is the only way i trust my any of the larger hookahs on the table.

Broke three vases already, two of which were KM. One fell down, another my brother-in-law tripped on and broke it, third one was in my car trunk and a helluva bump did the job !

I can send u a FREE KM base of ur choice, if u'd pay shipping !
