Default Question regarding my KM

Hey there

There is some strange piece of metal inside the stem of my KM, look at the picture:



Now as you can see, it is located at the bottom of the stem and it does not affect smoking at all, but when cleaning the hookah, it sometimes pulls out some bristles from my brush and that sucks. So, I can bend it with a knife and possibly I could remove it as well, but perhaps it's there for some pupose (smoldering etc.). Anyone seen this as well?

just a stray piece from when they cut the stem i'm guessing. I had something similar in my blue pear. filed it down and it's fine.

It's just a left over burr that should be removed.




...but if your hookah falls apart afterwards, remember MrBungle said it was ok first...

Thought it was removed already

Just a Bur of no value and after you have removed and your Car falls apart you would know what it was connected too

I personally think the flanged stems are a poor design, that area is one of the first that you will find rust.

ONe of mine had it too. Took the end of my nail file (smooth edge one) and rotated it in there to get the burr out without cutting myself.
