not that sexy's vase is 70 bucks, its a regular km vase. i have the same vase except the red sections are frosted and i can tell you, it looks awesome nearly clear.

I got a response from George about this whole problem. He said my base was not fired right so they are sending me a base from a KM Amer along with a gromment to make sure it fits. The first response was from there rep and he said they have to stick with there policy. I will let you guys know when I get it and post some pictures of it or something.

I agree with Scoop on spending the money on an expensive hookah and it not even lasting a month. They are also dealing with handmade stuff so they kind of have to expect things to not go right. I do wish I got a base like Scoops to begin with because the frosted look has got to look nice. I acually think the Amer bases are frosted but we will see.

Eh, I kinda snapped at you. Either way I guess it is just personal opinion weather or not the fact that the vase is peeling is that big of a deal.

I think the Amer bases are somewhat frosted...?
They look nice though. You could probably buy a stem for the other base and you could have two hookahs, minus an ashtray for one.

Ok guys I got my base from HC today and it looks really nice. I like the new base better then the old one actually. It doesn't look so cheap, and obviously the other one was cheap since it peeled. It actually surprised me because the way George explained it to me it sounded like it was going to be red. It has red on it but not a whole lot. Oh well its great...

Here are some pictures of it in case you want to see it:




Thank you all for your support. I will be peeling the old base so stand by for that!

the same exact thing happened to me with my tri-metal. the red paint started coming off and looked terrible, i just peeled it off when i was cleaning it and to be honest i prefer it clear. you get to admire the smoke and it's fun to purge it and watch it build up.

Well I pealed the old base and figured id post a few pictures of it to see what you guys think. It still needs a little more touch up work. In the pics you can see a little red line I missed. All I used is some nail polish remover and some other stuff I cant remember what its called. Anyway I hope you guys like it. I want to smoke from it this weekend. I think it will be cool being able to see the smoke hehe.
