Pen:

The name pen is shared by many knives.  As a general rule, it describes any double ended knife that measures less than 3 1/2″ closed. Some pens include the senator or equal end pen, the sleeveboard pen, and the premium pen.  Senator pens are those with a perfectly oval shaped handle.  Sleeveboard pens have a handle that tapers to a narrower rear.  Premium pen knives are generally classified as pen knives that share the pattern number with a stockman knife.  This is of course subject to argument, but most collectors categorize pens in this manner.

Regular jack knives are single or two-blade single end knives that do not have a distinct name for themselves.  These are very stout knives that make excellent working knives, but are not usually the most desired by collectors.  Many of these knives are known as teardrop jacks or swell end jacks because the rear of the knife is wider than the front.  The 99 pattern is the most collectable.  Other patterns include the 14, 31, and 35.

Serpentine Knife:

Many knives include the name serpentine. There are serpentine jack knives, serpentine stockman knives, and serpentine pen knives.  The term simply describes the shape of the handle.  They generally have an s curve, much like a snake or serpent (hence the name).  If you hear a knife described as a
serpentine pen, it will more likely than not be a premium pen.  The same goes for serpentine jack knives as they are often synonymous with premium
jack knives.  Almost all stockman knives have at least a slight s shape, so can be referred to as a serpentine stockman or stock knife.
