Default Khalil Mamoun vs Nour Syrian

Hey guys, you've all been talking me into looking into KM's over Nour Syrian's. Well, since I'm Syrian as you know, this was no easy task I must say. I finally gave in and purchased a 36" KM Blue Pear. All I have to say is, NOW I know what all this talk is about! The KM smokes like a 1974 Buick car exhaust! It's absolutely wonderful, but I have both the Nour Syrians at John's site now. I'm very grateful to own the Syrians and I'd give them up for nothing, but the KM is an absolute smoke machine!!! Currently I have 4 narghiles:

11" Mya Bambino
26" Nour Syrian (A)
26" Nour Syrian (B)
36" KM Blue Pear

All are wonderful, and to finish this up....SHOKRAN HOOKAH PRO AND ******* HOOKAH!!!!!!

- Mohamed

NOTE: Ahmad your gift will be purchased Wednesday should be. We will discuss it in MSN my friend

The pull seems easier and the smoke density is a bit better than what I can perform with my Syrians...there I said it!

Welcome to KM ownership bro. I too, own KM's (3) and a Nour (definitely the finest of my Syrians) -- all smoke great. I'm trying to hunt down an Ager to round out my collection.

Km's FTMFW. but I really like the look of that nour bohemian on HC. If I could get that stem and just a regular old syrian style base I'd be sh*t-chucking happy!

Actually, no I refuse to say KM smokes best. The reason for this is because I lit up the KM and the Nour Syrian last night to see what would happen and as for smoke density, it really wasn't too much difference, seriously. My Nour Syrians NEVER let me down, but the pull seems easier with the KM like Bungle said. From what I could tell, there isn't huge differences in between the two as far as smoke density. This is something I'll have to try out again to know for sure. However, I will admit KM'S are hands down, extremely well-made narghiles and there is a fine reason why most people on this site are crazy about them.

Also, Bungle I received both the Syrian and KM yesterday.

Well I am not sure that it makes to much sense to compare a 36" U.S. narghile with a 26" U.S. one. Obviously it is matter of taste to some extent if one prefers a KM or some Syrian narghile of one kind or another. I don't have any Nours but I do own several Syrian rigs and I think that 4 4 hole closed common heart leads to better difusion of the smoke and more flavour. I also think that the masssive weight of the Syrian rigs is a mark of quality. In the end I think both are very good but I like Syrian rigs more.

Hajo -- I'm interested in your comments here. I've always been under the impression that common chamber/heart stems are inferior to standard chamber narghiles, although there isn't a lot of conversation about this in the forums. Anecdotally, my KM's and Nour pipes (standard chamber) produce a higher volume of smoke with an easier pull than the ones I own (syrian and mya/chinese) with the common chamber. Can you expand on this?

Just to let you guys know, I noticed with this KM the welding was put together very poorly. I noticed the purge valve would not work correctly because smoke was seeping through the weld there and at the hose port. I got some gorilla glue and fixed this problem as well as another problem I was having with the stem/base grommet. Now it smokes very nice, but I would rather not have to do this each time I purchase a KM. So my conclusion...

Nour Syrians > KM

Anyone that wants to hate, I will slap you and strangle you with my hose that reads, "Nour." Ohhh Yeah!!!

Man you got one of the few KM's that were legit messed up and you are basing claims off of it. I Have a KM and I can say that they don't have the cleanest welds but they are sturdy.

Assuming the defects don't affect smoke quality, defects aside, they are both equal IMO. My KM Exotica and my Nour Syrian both have some pretty ugly welds, but they are both airtight, purge well, and draw perfectly. They are, afterall, handmade. I like having a variety of KM's, Syrians, Mya's, etc. They all provide slightly different characteristics, but all smoke well.

I own a KM and I want to trade it for a Nour syrian. I have smoked both quite a bit. I have smoked my friends Nour syrian and seem to just like it better. I get the same amount of clouds. But the KM is just a bit to intense for me. IDK. Just preference.

For speaking such blasphemy I say you give me your KM....and work up the funds for a Syrian...How dare you say such a horrible thing about a masterpiece?

easy now... its just personal preference. Honestly I think my KM is beautiful and it smokes very well, but I just happen to like Syrians a little more. If i got a syrian, I wouldn't smoke my KM very much any more so I might as well trade it. or sell it and buy a syrian. Thats all. I am not saying KMs are bad pipes. I am simply saying they are not my favorite.
