Default looking at KMs

Okay ive seen KMs praised to highly on here and I have decided to buy one the one im looking at is

http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-6206-...se-hookah.html
or
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-5261-...on-hookah.html

I like them both a lot but I have a few questions about each.

1. Can you wash KM hoses?
2. with the second hookah, with the hose where it plugs in, someone in the comments says it makes the hookah tip over, and personally my dumb-ass I tip the hookah enough as it is, I dont need any help.

thanks!

first of all the second one is sold out so unless your up for a wait your going to be getting the Sallah.

1. No, the hoses that come with KM's are leather and have the metal spiral inside so they are not washable.

2. With KM hoses they do stick out a bit and aren't exactly prone to just tipping because of this they need an outside force to knock them over, if they are pushed in correctly that is, but the hose that comes with the first one you shouldn't have an issue.

But, I would still recommend some sort of washable hose like the Nammor.

The KM hoses do stand out far, but rarely does mine tip or wobble and never has it fallen over.

I will say though on a smaller pipe, say under 20 inches then you have a good chance of a KM hose tipping it over.

i'd stay away from the smaller ones, mine is about 32" tall. don't get me wrong all km's are nice. but after seeing some reviews on the smaller ones, i went with the taller one, because of the tip factor.

The Sallah comes with the cobra hose, which I personally dont like, they trap tastes quickly and dont last long. As far as tipping over is concerned, the KM hoses stick out far, but i can pull on them pretty hard if the hose isnt facing towards me and literally spin my hookah, so you shouldnt have too much of a problem. It only wobbles if i set it on a wobbly tv dinner style table and someone bumps it.

Take a look at hookahstore.com too, they have some nice KM's, for competitive prices .... unless you already looked there and didnt find one you liked.

I was going to say look around a little more..... I personally don't like Hookah-Shisha selection, I really don't like how they name their hookahs something totally different then everybody else but some other vendors do it as well.
Heres the same Sallah hookah called something else on Nazar, http://www.nazarhookah.com/khalil-ma...-abanos-hookah (Sucks its sold out right now but you can contact them to find out if they get anymore in anytime soon)

Like you I was worried about knocking over my hookah as well... So I got a Sahara Large base and bought a all brass hookah stem separate, Weighs a total of 8.2 LBs with no water.
Heres some very stable looking hookah setups pretty much hookahs with the Jumbo Base.

I was going to say the same thing. H-S.com doesn't have teh best selection of KM's, definitely check out those links and browse the sites before you buy it.

I am new to hookahs. A month ago, I received a "generic" rotator Egyptian as a gift. A few days later I bought my first "KM"
Then, a week later I bought 3 more KM's.
I ordered mine from www.hookahstore.com
"Alvin" is a very nice guy, and he makes sure you are 100% satisfied with your order!

In my short experience owning 4 KM's. I think BIGGER IS BETTER. I started of with a 28", then got a 32", then two 38 inchers. In my opinion, the 38" inchers smoke much better, and look much better!

Started with this
http://www.hookahstore.com/hookah-st...tem-p-361.html

Then went bigger, to 32"
http://www.hookahstore.com/hookahs-k...kah-p-689.html

Then went to 38"
(the "Double copper" is the heaviest, and best looking!!) (with the "Exotica" a very close second!)
http://www.hookahstore.com/hookahs-k...kah-p-224.html

http://www.hookahstore.com/hookahs-k...kah-p-140.html

I love www.hookahstore.com and they have a 20% off sale on all hookahs right now.
