It looks kind of similar to a hookah I have been asking some local people about. Not exactly the same but close. They say theirs was made my MZ. I don't have any pics of it though.

My KM Pharonie has the same purge valve as well. In fact there are a number of similar features, stylistically that is.

Looks KM-ish to me but cannot tell for sure. The ash tray and the holder will confirm its identity.

it is a solid brass egyptian from the looks, and regardless of whether it is KM, temsaah or some brand we have never heard of.... odds are it is a sick pipe. I, for one, am quite jealous of your friend.

it looks like on of the late 2009 early 2010 KM stems, but if its a KM it should have the KM logo all over the place.

I seems to be a well made Egyptian and unless you can read what the Arabic on the tray says I doubt you'll know what it is for sure. Truthfully I don't think it matters much since numerous Egytpian brands are as well built as KM.

The purge valve is a useless factor. They get switched out a lot. It's like trying to determine the brand only by the hose.

What matters is the signature. I hope your friend gets back to you with an answer even if it is not a KM it looks like a nice solid rig. the most important part is the function rather than the name.

About the hole on top, I used a dremmel on most my purge valves after I reviewed them to get a better purge, its real quick and easy....

As for the hookah, when it was smaller it looked like a temsah, but after expanding the size of the image, i'm not so sure...

Indeed, that's exactly what matters. It seems to be a well made massive brass, quality Egyptian pipe. And, we should bear in mind that BRANDS are not that important. Of course, since they were introduced thousands of years ago, they fullfill their role, they inform costumers about the maker or seller who guarantees a given level of quality... Now, for Hookahs, until "Shishamania" developed in Western countries, and particularly until the American market surged (about 10 years ago), brands almost did'nt exist. Buyers went to the specialised sector of the souk, and for good pipes, choose the elements (as we used to do a couple of decades ago with Hi Fi equipment) one by one: You choose a quality stem, looking at the average quality, and particularly at the weldings (to make sure there were no leaks), then you choose a nice Bohemian vase, a nice hoose, and some clay bowls... There are in fact many other well made pipes besides KMs... Then, today as decades ago, many components are made by different workshops and then assembled by the factory or workshop selling a given brand...
