Default What the...

So I had packages show up today, one I knew about and one I didnt. The one I knew about was a Hot Pink Caravan Hose for my wife. See pictures below, didnt feel like doing it solo.

Now the package I didn't know about. I had a friend leave work for another state. Before she left we got to talking about hookahs and how her daughter smokes hookah. She said if she ever gets to go to Egypt, or the middle east, she will bring me back a hookah! Well today I get a package and in it is a KM hookah. She said she walked into a middle eastern store and saw this hookah. It was on sale because it was a mismatch hookah. I guess just something thrown together that has been in the shop awhile. She said she got it for $40 out the door. Looks like a single pear to me, but I am not a KM expert, anybody care to chime in on what it is?

It kind of looks like a Carnival.


The stem looks the same. the vase, obviously, is different. Good find and for 40 bucks, nice!

I think it's a single pear too, and I must say your friend has amazing taste. That is one gorgeous hookah. You gotta get her something now you probably would have spent 150 bucks at least on a KM like that here in the states.

it is a pretty common pipe... they just throw random colors in to the pear making machine for a tie dye effect. Often times (as others have said) it is called a KM Carnival.

40 doillars is a friggin steal. Congrats.

to authenticate it is a KM check the tray holder for their flower logo. Look at your Silk Butterfly for reference.

ok this is amazing but my dad won an almost identical hookah(same base) on ebay and if thats 34inchs tall she made out like a bandit cause the one my dads getting me cost 143$. Oh there are three slight differiences with mine its a two hose and the pear is red and blue and it's not here yet.

To my knowledge the proper name for KMs with plastic center pieces is Caramana, which is the simplified phonetic spelling of the Arabic كهرمان. According to Google, that translates to "amber" (fossilized resin).

Thanks for the help. I thought the carnival stems were red, blue, orange, and yellow mixed together, may just be the ones I have seen. I don't care though, it is awesome! I don't have to return the favor, I already did that at the going away party we threw.

KillerB that was the first thing I looked at. It looks almost identical to my Silk Butterfly, only difference I see is it is a tad smaller.

Actually Dee, while the new hookah is a nice gesture, it is something I could have picked up myself. Not for that price though. What you are sending me is probably something I would have passed on for awhile or maybe never have tried it at all. So to be honest, I am more excited to be getting your package. Saving this new hookah though for the sample I am getting from you.New hookah for a new smoke, sounds good to me.

You should be looking for the Arabic خليل مأمون (Khalil Mamoon) engraved in between the lotus flowers. The lotus flowers themselves have differed among KM stems and are also used by other manufacturers.

Carnival is just a name a vendor gave to the multi-color Caramanas. There are different colorways for them.
