I'm not too sure, but I know when I see if on a pipe its a KM maybe its just for a "brand Identity".

It's common to Egyptian pipes. I've heard it's purpose is to make the bubbling louder.

They have nuts on them to let you know they are boys.



But I really have no idea as to the functionality of them.

Agreed, I'm not sure, but they also have their slots for the hoses curved a little and have the fancy engraving for the tray, I think it's all to set them apart from the competition.

My guess is that it is just for looks. Maybe it's to make it look more phallic

No way I would use my hookah in a zombie invasion as a weapon, first of all there are much better weapons around my house second, and most importantly, my hookah would be broken and covered in zombie blood rendering it unsmokable.

Haha exactly.
I could see it being to make bubbling louder, or maybe it reduces pull by opening up the end of the down stem.

I'm goin with brand identity on this one. Bubbling....sure whatever....but you cannot mistake them for the clearly defined base shape.

Must be my designer's side o' the brain talkin...
