Default Name this hookah!

so i was looking around in my storage room in the basement and found 1 rotator hookah and a stem to another hookah. no vase but i cleaned out the stem and was just curious to see if this is a certain type of hookah?
i dont know the diff between egyptian or syrian or anything but heres a pic and i guess give it a whirl!

it would be egyptian, and looks like a khalil mamoun. there should be some arabic, or lower engravings or some marks up by where the tray goes, or the stem on the bottom should have a very peculiar shape right where it ends.

It looks more like an MZ. The stubby purge valve really makes it look like an mz. We need more pics. Like of the ashtray!

IIRC not all KMs have the same tray.

I think it is more likely a KM knockoff. The only thing similar in the pic you linked to is the pear things. The shaft is a lot thicker on the one in question, almost if not as big as the pears themselves. The metal in between the pears on the KM is much thinner.

there are tons of narghille producers in egypt, and the fact is, most egyptian shisha look very much the same.This is not something trying to be this or that, but likely just another egyptian shisha.My point? With the exception of the mutli-metal models, and the older brass stems, There is not alot of air between most egyptian narghille. Visually anyway.

i guess thats true. just because its egyptian doesnt mean its trying to be a KM. Km is just a popular egyptian hookah that is easily comparable to other egyptian models
