Default A New One On Me

Well today I received a KM Carneval I bought off of e-bay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=180488109535 It came packaged really well, and extremely clean. In fact I would swear it was new except for a little odor of something sweet. Maybe SB or similar.

What caught me off guard, other than all the extras that were thrown in, was the hose. It looks in the picture like a standard 2010 KM Signature Hose. However, when I opened up the wrapping, here is what I saw:



Not only is the Mouthpiece removable (AWESOME) so is the hose port piece.

I am assuming this isn't a one of a kind, and when I look at the hose port side it appears to be made this way. And its got the KM tag so I don't *think* its a knock off.

Has anyone else come across one of these?

The KM Tundra hose that came with my carnival has the mouthpiece removable, but the hose port was hot glued in place.

weird, normally if the mouthpiece is removable its because its washable. As far as i knew, KM still does not make a washable. Wonder what is up with this hose.
Have you smoked it yet?
It is a hookah mystery for now.

I have never heard of a km with a removable mouth piece let alone a removable port end but it is very exciting since now you can upgrade it with a crownhookah tip

It looks to me like the seller modded the hose and that the tips are sealed in with bowl grommets now.

I would agree with you Kal but I have another KM Signature and the "peacock" piping doesn't look modified to me. Its very clean and there is a bit of leather wrapped over the edges of the tube that looks Waaaaay too well done for a mod.

I will try to take pics later.

Honestly I have seen more KM hoses with removable tips than those without. I have a closet full of hoses, literally, and theres at least 12 KM hoses, Just one of them I can't remove the tip, the other horde all can be removed, as well as the hose port end.

And that's definitely a legit KM hose, Derek. Very good find.

If I'm not mistaken all hoses start that way in contruction, probably ship that way too to avoid tips snapping due to the increased leverage a hose handle would give. I'm pretty sure no one makes an integrated tip so my guess would be this guy gave you a bowl grommet instead of hot gluing the hose tip in... I know I'd prefer it to be removable. nice hose.

I have a few that you can remove both parts on. Two of them have the nice bi-metal mouth pieces.
