Default Just got my first KM

Fedex just dropped it off my first KM. It looks awesome and all the little imperfections give it a lot of character. I like that.

I just had a couple questions. Do I need to wash it out before I smoke it the first time? I think I read somewhere that there might be ash residue left in it from the machining process?

Also, what the heck does this base protector thing do? It kind of seems like it would make it LESS stable.

Man, I'm so pumped!

Yes, wash the crap out of it! Once you have given it a good wash, break that thing in with a good smoke. Congrats on the new rig, man.

Thanks!

One more new discovery, though. The stem and grommet were tight going into the vase, so I used a little water to get it in there. Now, as I have discovered, it's not wanting to come out.

Anyone know what to do about this?

pull it out hard, the base protector makes it stable. Try it and see if it works!

I just got mine a week ago. The base is a bit hard. I just put it on the ground, use my legs to hold it in place, and pull it off by trying to swivel it around...

Congrats. I am calling for some pictures though. I want to see your new baby.

I suggest using some sand paper and taking the grommet down until it goes into the vase with a little effort but you can still take it out without having to fight with the hookah.

sand paper as a last resort, you did good with the water getting it in so now you need to practice getting it out, hold the base bw your bicep and chest under your armpit, like a football.with your right hand hold the stem, like a hand gun, your fingers under the hose port and the part of your hand bw thumb and first finger under the purge valve. rock the stem back and forth, hopefully this will work wo the need to sand anything down, and with me water is the best lube on a hookah.

Grats on the kM! Where's the photos man?

water+very very little dishwashing liquid FTW next time, wont dry out as quickly.

Like mentioned above by the pro, grip the shaft and wiggle it back and forth until it releases

I'll get to work on the pictures. I just love the hookah so much, I want the pictures to do her justice.

Holy crap. Holy crap. Holy crap. Holy crap.

This is the best smoking experience I have ever had! Okay, don't get me wrong, I love my Mya hookah, but it literally takes no effort to draw from this hookah!

WOW! This is amazing!

Definitely wash the thing, the part that seemed to have the most "contaminant" in was the hose port/tube. I washed it for a good 5 mins to make sure I got it spotless before I smoked out of it. You want to make sure you get rid of any residue which is bound to be in there after the thing is built.

Wash it first for sure and I used a little vegetable oil on the base grommet the first few times and that worked.
