I have a 31" solid brass Syrian shisha and it is as good if not better than any shisha I've smoked from.The Syrians john has in stock are similar to mine and while I've never used this particular rig i'm sure they are of the utmost quality.

I have both an KM and brass Syrian. The Syrian is my go to rig every day. It performs beautifuly. Look at Abu's pics, he is getting fantastic smoke thickness and flavor on a Syrian. Eventually I will get some picks up of my rig steaming away.

I have a syrina stem (af hookah) that I put in a bohemian glass. I have it under one one the pics in my album. The difference i have noticed is thet bubbles are alot smoother/softer than with a big egyptian. I have been using it for a few days now and like it. I am so tempted to take one of the ones of the shelf and try it. I think they would perform even better since mine doesn't go deep enough in the base. These new ones do, mainly due to the bases being smaller.

No such thing as an all brass KM. they all have steel downstems unfortunately. These Syrians are much better quality then any KM available on our market, including in the near future.

If you want quality, you are better off buying a Syrian. And they are traditional chamber as well.

of course Zen. We all know that the downstem is steel.We are reffering to the decorative shaft.

Ohhh well alrighty.

Yeah, Syrian stems are also all one solid piece. With KM's, each piece of the stem is soldered to the other, around a tube. It doesn't even have the capability of being as ornamental as a Syrian for that reason. The Tri-Metal is as close as they can possibly get. I'm sure the time spent on the construction of a KM is about half of that of a Syrian.

many syrian stems are in fact solid.But there are alot of syrian narghille that are not only pieced together, but in fact have each segment threaded so the stem can be broken down for cleaning and/or storage. this is a feature common on many indigenous syrian shisha.

KM used to make all brass stuff until about 3 years ago. In Egypt El Ashrey and Shisha King still make all brass stuff but the don't export those.

I've a bunch of all brass Syrians (J & R, Furrat, Arabica Sous and a few others) and I think that the 4 smoke inlet stems are the way to go. Beyond that I like the easy cleaning of the multi-part cast stem types but the cast & sleeved are very good too so it comes to preference. *******'s Syrians look great but I'm only interest in getting rigs between 32" and 36" at this point.

I am also a owner of a "cast and sleeved" all brass Syrian. It was my first rig and I like it a ton. It is extremely durable and never let me down. I get a nice smooth smoke out of it daily with nothing less but extravagant smoke and flavor. You won't be disappointed if you decide to get a Syrian.

My first Syrian is not sectioned and the core is one solid brass tube all the way through, from top to downstem. I use an old rifle cleaning rod with nylon bristle brush to clean it. Just push it all the way through and start over.

Yeah.... I was waiting on the new KMs, but decided to order one of those syrians. As near as I can tell, you can't go wrong with a top quality syrian.

Do itttt
