Yeah, UFIP made them for Slingerland and branded them Kashian. UFIP used these pseudo-Arabic names to cash in on the Turkish cymbal market in order to compete with Zildjian.

Kashian does sound a lot better than UFIP which is a terrible name for a cymbal maker.
I can live with the name UFIP but what’s baffling is the term “Ear Created Cymbals” inked on top. It just sounds silly

I just got a pair of 1970s 14" Kashian hi-hats with a Pearl FG kit. B20, and I'm knocked out by how they sound! I'd put them up against old Zildjian hats any day. Really, they're that good!

Wow, I missed those.

I use a pair myself and I also love them. Yours are in considerably better shape than mine, especially that stamp, it looks really fresh. Very nice...
