Quality's nowhere near a KM on the darwish. Friend of mine bought one about three months back... The inside of the stem has already corroded through and sprung a leak out the middle of the stem. Big ol' hole in the side of it.

Aside from that, they're narrow, plated common chamber, and the pieces don't fit together right (Modular stem).

To be honest, I've had $20 chinese hookahs that have outperformed and outlasted my buddy's darwish. They don't come close to comparing to a KM for quality.

This alone is a big enough problem and the Mini-Americanas are only $30 away in price point, well worth the investment if you ask me.
OT: I've been fawning over that stem for a month or two except I'm leaning towards the blue Arabic, tell me how it goes!

that's ~44$ w/o shipping for a KM, although I think you might have to buy the grommets for them (bowl/base/hose). That's the cheapest you can get I think, but double shipping is annoying.

I'd recommend avoiding the mini KMs and going with one of their larger models. Actually, try to avoid any Egyptian mini if you can get a larger one.

The Amer is not a brass hookah. They are hollow stainless steel. There are also multiple versions of the stem, each with slight variances (3 that I've come across). If you want the OG Amer with the brass ring shank with KM stamping and the original hose tube with engraving, get it from Hookah Company. The same is true for the OG Butterfly and Hafa. If those details don't matter to you, the other variances are so minor it won't really make a difference where you get it from.

so there is a diffrerence depending on where you get it from? i got mine from hookah company so does that mean i got the good one?

I have the americana rig posted first.

Its a lighter pipe and a smaller gauge than my large KMs.

Cheaper tray, smaller base, etc.

IMO its worth the extra 20$ to not get a miniaturized cheapo rig. Better bang for your buck.

I'll put some pictures up next weekend when we hang out.

Giant crack in the stem where it corroded through from the inside. Looks like the metal was very thin on that spot, and covered over by the electroplating.

And it totally has a plated common chamber... Maybe it varies by model? The one in question is the spear, I believe.
