Km Choice!

Recommended Posts

Right guys, I've finally got enough money, but I can't decide which KM to get!
It's between these three, if you could help me out with past experiences, or just generally choose, that'd be much appreciated!

1. http://www.hookahshop.co.uk/world-cup-by-khalil-mamoon-green-32-inch-p-1504.html

2. http://www.hookahshop.co.uk/al-juhara-the-jewel-by-khalil-mamoon-green-28-inch-p-1567.html

3. The single decker version of this (with one carousel rather than two) http://www.hookahjohn.com/KM-1001-Nights-Double-Decker-2085.htm

4. Probably the non chiller version http://www.hookahjohn.com/KM-World-Cup-Trophy-Chiller-Green-2083.htm

5. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Shisha-Khalil-Mamoon-hookah-pipe-FREE-GIFT_W0QQitemZ180480331512QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Collectables_Tobacciana_Smoking_LE?NHT (Non-Hookah Tobacco)=item2a05774ef8#ht_500wt_1182

Thanks!

I was thinking along the same lines.. Mushrat said the ice melts after around 15 min, and you're left with a top heavy hookah

i mean you can get an ice and just never fill up the chamber so it doesnt get top heavy but then why shell out the extra bucks for one

I've actually ran across three different types of Amers and also Hafas/Butterflies (the Hafa is a different stem than the Butterfly but they are similar enough that they are mixed up by vendors). HC has the original style with the brass ring shank and OG engraved hose port, like the one in the ebay link.

i'm pretty sure mine is different....my hose port has the bubble on the end, like most of my other KMs. does that mean i have the new model? i bought mine from HJ.

Walt, you know if there's a difference between the two, build-wise?

either way, i still suggest the Amer....it's a good pipe.

Make sure not to mention banned vendors on here... I'm sure even the initials of the vendor you're talking about will be edited out of your last post there. This is the reason you could not link it.

Different vendors call KMs different names. A certain model KM may be called one thing by one vendor, but another name by a different vendor. The name is simply for classification purposes. Gotta call it something, right? Anyway, make sure not to get too caught up in what it's name is... Many of the KMs have the same name by different vendors, but some do not. Really there's no official names for any of them...

No. Cannot link to banned vendors under any circumstances, as far as I know.

Yeah, you got one of the newer ones. They're built using the same methods but the OG is slightly different in design. The brass ring, sunken internal ports, and engraved hose port would be the biggest differences, which are what make that stem and the OG butterfly & hafa unique IMO. If you don't care for that, it doesn't really matter.

Mkay... care to elaborate? I was under the impression KM didn't give them official names, so therefore vendors have to call them something. Hence why John in his vids is like, "Yeah, I don't know what I'm gonna call these new KMs, maybe the 2010's." Even though most of them are called the same thing by most vendors, it's been my experience there's no official name for any of them. Catch my drift?
