it depends on size, metals used (stainless steel, dual metal, trimetal or solid brass) ....etc.

$20-$30 could buy u a decent KM ..... I got my latest whole brass KM with everything minus the hose for $25 ..... My Bahariya which is the biggest hookah I ever had is $44 including everything .... and yes hoses start at $2 to $4 ......

Im looking into trying to import 10-15 KM's into Canada and then reselling them locally or just online in Canada, sounds like something I could do. Only problem I find is that air freight is ridiculously expensive, so i'm looking into sea-mail but seems emailing for quotes is useless, tommorow I may have to make some calls or step into offices to talk to people.

Group buy in bulk.. then everyone gets one at super low cost.. :P

If you buy in bulk, you could buy like what, 20? @50 each(including your share of S&H) that wouldn't be too bad.. $1000ish?

Ripped off? Perhaps you should price out how much it costs to get a container of stems, vases, hoses, etc. shipped here. Then price out how much importers would have to sell to vendors to cover those costs and then how much vendors would have to sell to us to cover their costs. On top of that price out how much mark up they would need to just to keep a business running. The people who bring us these goods need to make a living also. We should be grateful they are providing us this service.

It's not like they have a monopoly on these either. No one is stopping you from flying there yourself and getting what you want.

I think $100 is a fair price for KM's considering how much it actually cost to get in fro everyone.

Flying out like i did and bringing a few back still ended up costing me 70 a piece at least.

There are so many authentic Egyptian brands ......

The exchange rate has been quite the same for 4 years ...... $1 = 5.5 EGP give or take 3% up or down ....... So 50 pounds means $9 indeed.

Indeed. I used to manage a hookah bar. The pipe itself isn't the expensive part.

That's part of the reason that chinese hookahs have flooded the market. It's cheaper to send them over.

itsn't just about being cheaper to send over, Chinese hookahs are mass-produced, not hand made !

I said part of the reason. Many of the chinese firms that manufacture hookahs also make multitudes of other products. They can ship more bulk = cheaper.

I own two hookahs, a mitsuba junior and a KM Pharonie. I'm aware of the difference betwixt hand made and machine made
