Default KM closeup shot

Hey all,

With all the hype on KMs and them being made in Egypt and me never seeing them here, I decided to look for them in the old Cairo market, however I do not want to get fooled and get a knock-off, I appreciate from all of you KM owners out there closeups of the logo/name on the hookah that will help me find it and get the authentic one.

Thanks

The only true way to tell an authentic KM is to look near the hose port, there will be Arabic Writing underneath it. Thats how you can tell if its a knock off or not.

My Exotica has no writing on the port, and no writing on the vase. It does however have the designs and "Khalil Mamon" on the ashtray. There are many different spellings (due to translation I've heard), and many different parts are made in different factories. If you buy from a reputable dealer, odds are it's authentic. If it hits great, seals well, IMO it doesn't matter. It also came with an authentic KM hose with the yellow tag.

Ask and you shall receive. There have been alot of threads elsewhere regarding this, and I've heard it's all due to translation that's all. They are authentic.

Finally today I got the address and contact of the retail shop. It's in old Cairo so parking there is next to impossible so I think I will park downtown and take a cab to there. I might go today or tomorrow MAX and I am considering a giant hookah (38"+) with a chiller and a clear base, all in stainless steel (not interested in dual/trimetal or copper/brass since I want something durable that would not rust in the humid environment here). Any recommendations before I go tonight (in 8 hours from now)?
