there are fakes of everything in this industry unfortunately. There are good fakes and bad ones. You should look closely at the work as KM, MZ, and MYA have their names because of their quality. Some are also no name copies and can be good too if you are limited on choices ar cash.
(btw, smoking af vanilla/peach mix now)

The bottom of your stem, has a nut, instead of a flared bell ... that would make me question it, depending on the year it was made?

I dunno, even if it is a fake, how does it smoke. If it smokes bomb then who cares! If it smokes well, I don't know if it does, that just goes to show even wannabe hookahs have potential.

There is a good way to tell if its fake and its not by the spelling. The spelling doesnt matter, what matters is the hose port. Look around your hose port, if it has egyptian writing or arabic writing its an authentic KM. Thats the only way to tell.

Don't real KMs have the pointy purge valve cap and fake ones don't. I thought I heard that a while back. Don't really know though.

Even if mine was a fake I wouldn't care b/c it smokes great and that's what really matters.

Even if it is a fake, if it smokes well then who cares ? It is virtually a KM lol. Now if the performance was kinda lacking, I would be concerned.

Why do you think its fake? The spelling doesnt matter. The Ash trays are stamped with a different spelling on almost every one I have seen.

also even if you don't have a bulb at the end of the stem its fine. The "on the rocks" have nut looking things at the bottom of the stem.

I could maybe give the benefit of the doubt if there was only one question mark, but all of them? F that.

I'm thankful that I found this thread. I don't care if it smokes well or not, I think selling counterfeits of anything is bullshit (especially when they are advertised as authentic) so I'm gonna just send it back

do you have a pic? none of those points makes it non authentic

not all the hoses have the yellow tag (only my leather ones do)
all my trays have mispelled names
none of my kms have arabic writing near the hose stem

Arabic Writing near the hose port is a dead giveaway. I was told by a reputable source that every KM has this......BTW Tri Metals arent made by KM, its the only KM thats outsourced.

The mash'al seems to have some sort of stamp on the hose port with some hard to make out things near but the rest of my kms have nothing on the hose ports. i dont know if i necessarily believe that, one of the kms was from a very reputable vendor and i doubt they'd sell fakes
