Yeah I've been wondering why Egyptians have that lil ball at the end. I think its cuz it acts as a sort of diffuser to break the bubbles up into smaller ones? Eh idk

Yeah I heard of this too but I really don't see the need for the nut or bolt or whatever

Does anybody know why KM stems are considered the best? Are they thicker stems?

From what I've seen, they are really wide in terms of diameter. Which means more smoke and probably an easier pull.

I've speculated that the nut soldered on is a cheap way of re-enforcing the end of the stem. Most Egyptians...including MZ and KM are made with copper line (like water line and gas line in your house) that has had solder smeared over it to make it look like its stainless steel.

The end of that tube can fairly easily become dinged in or mashed otherwise.

I got my first so called Egyptian Hookah two days ago for $40 i took it home in a plastic bag no box or accessories with it. It has the same thing a bolt at the end. I believe its a cheap version of the real thing, if i follow up the steam under the rubber seal you can see a poor attempt on the work. It dose the job for now till i buy a KM ... Plus you would die laughing if you saw the hose i got with it has these little furry pomp pomps on each end of it. ... Sorry not my style
