Default would like some assistance-first time buyer

Been smoking for a few years now but never owned my own, and Ive pretty much decided Id like to get a KM if possible. Thats the brand ive seemed to enjoy the most, but Id like to find one that 32" and want one that comes with a case. The case-is the part ive had trouble with, ive only been able to find small ones with a case, I like the majority of the models they make just dont want a clear base. If anyone knows any they could recommend id greatly aappreciate it!

Case is gonna be tricky.

I modified an old leather and canvas golf bag. Works great, holds my pipe securely and all the fixin's. Also, it's lined with thick plastic that does a decent job protecting the pipe (My son already tipped it once. No damage). $6 at goodwill, the best hookah transportation device I've seen yet.

Those cases are nice, I just disassemble mine and put everything into a backpack, very easy to carry. I wrap my base in an old tshirt so it has protection and every little thing has its own pocket it gets carried in.

KMs dont come with a case, you pretty much have to find something to put it in. They make great decoration though so just leave it out!

Most people say all KM's smoke the same... so i would buy whatever you think looks best. I would check out hookahstore for sure.. they have one of the bigger KM selections.. Hookah-shisha has an okay selection of them as well. As far as cases go, normally small hookahs are the only ones that come with decent cases. I would recommend either buying a bag.. or buying a plastic toolbox.. depending on the size you may still be able to use the toolbox tray for tobacco/coals (both my friend and I have done it, and we painted both of them with some spray paint in a pretty badass way.)

I have a bag, i think its from saharasmoke.com. I got it secondhand, so I'm not sure, but tis awesome. It has internal straps to hold your stem and 3 decent sized pockets for tongs, bowl, coals, etc. can fit my 32" hookah with the base attached. has a carry strap too.

Some vendors will include a carrying bag with purchase (like hookah-shisha), but I'm not sure on the quality - will let you know tomorrow... I agree, for 32", you'll be hard-pressed to find a hard-sided case. I've seen them for 28" and under. Best of luck!

I would agree with what people said above. I had an old case I had for another hookah, used that for my KM. KM is definitely the way to go though ... finding a case that comes with it ... well that just won't happen. You'll either need to find a hookah case or just find a bag big / long enough.

They're also junk. They rust really fast and I believe they're all plated common chambered (No bueno). They look really nice, but they just don't stand up to long-term use, even when cared for. They're all fur coat and no trousers.

I have one of the social smoke smoke bags and they are really nice. The large ones would fit a 32" KM no problem because most of the time i have my 36" Magdy in there . KM's are great hookahs! Cheers!

I have a 28", 32" and two 38" KMs.

The "EXOTICA" by far is my favorite so far!
Great choice.
