Default Buying a new KM

Hey guys an gals,

I am pretty new to hookah and after making the usual noob mistakes in one big swoop (washing unwashable hose from cheap "pumpkin" hookah after overloading the bowl and you all know the rest..) I was shown the light!

I tried a few sessions with my m8s KM and it was great and I have decided to get one myself.

I live in the UK where the only things I can buy localy are more cheap pumpkin hookahs and soex...

I have found this 'aclaimed' KM on ebay (link: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/khalil-mamoon-...item23056cf1ee )

After seeing this and remembering the great time I had with one, I found myself instantly hitting the 'buy it now' button, but I am now worried it could be a 'fake'.

What are your views on this hookah forum?, think it is fake or real?

Looks right... would need a shot of the tray rest and a bit more of a stem closeup before I was was convinced.

It looks like a great hookah. Hope everything works out. I recently just purchased a KM on eBay and got a great steal of a deal.

Well if it smokes good and the price was right, then you should be happy! I would be interested to see what the pros on HP have to say? I'm still new, but have a KM and have been looking at many of their models, but the painting on top of the vase to me, and the stamping on the tray holder and tray look funny to me? Lotta fake stuff on eBay, but like I said, if the smoke is good and the price was right, then enjoy!

If it's a fake it's a damn good fake. I think you got the real deal here though

Hard for me to tell from the pics, and I'm new, so don't get bent out of shape from my comments. I'm sure the great minds on HP will chime in soon and give much better advice. Sorry to hear that obtaining hookahs for you in your neck of the woods is so difficult. Godspeed in your hookah purchases and smoking!

The stem does have Khalil Mamoon Trademark written on it and the tray also has the Khalil Mamoon signature. Looks legit to me

That looks fake to me :/ the valve area and the top of the stem. Check if its a solid peice of kit or if its just plated metal?
