Default fake KM's

hey everyone, i've been exploring new hookah places and i found a certain store that is selling beautiful tri-metal KM's for 100$, these are 30"+ , they have the KM signature on the piece under the tray, as well as the writing on the tray. the only problem is they come with some weird, cheapass chinese hoses, so is there anything else i can look for to make sure this isnt some look alike?

this was the base:

if the piece under the tray has it then the stem is legit. that base is also legit, sorry that the the hoses are cheap, i suggest you get a washable hose anyway

I think most stores pick the stem and vase separtly and put together the hookah themselve, and add a hose, but they added a cheap hose to cut cost, i say if it feels study, has wide hose and purge values and the stamp, more then likly legit

I second that. A lot of places will cut costs by selling the KM hose separately at a profit.

oh ok sweet thanks guys, i already have a nammor so the chinese one gets thrown out anyway.. i was just wondering because it didnt look right for this hose to be on the KM, anyway if i drop by ill pick it up and take some pics for you guys, this small shop had really nice ones and it was hidden - for even more authenticity the shop keeper didnt speak english so i had to communicate with her in arabic and she didnt know what KMs were..

don't throw it away! you could use it for flavors that could ghost on your hose even though it's washable (like coffee)
