    Ok. Let’s start with the basics. This is my first post, after the introduction. I am working on not being just a lurker, and actually being a participating member of The forum.
    Now, and very important... Before I get chewed up! I did search the forums for thoughts and reviews on the EOS serpent. Couldn’t find anything substantial. Thus, this post. So, now that we’ve covered my fears and insecurities... :sixx:... Any thoughts? Never seen one in person. Just like the look of it from a website photo. Wondering if it’s worth the cost. (Which is not bad at all.)
    Thank you!

    If you couldn't find anything about it on the best bali forum in the world then that should about tell you all you need to know.

    There's nothing wrong with the serpent.

    has several popular features like bushings, zen pens and ti handles.

    i have one and it has minimal play, no rub.

    quality seems as good or better than many.


    that being said, its not one of my favorites.

    i like the blade steel and the blade shape, but that's about it. its looks don't really speak to me and even though you can't touch the handles together, i don't like them being perfectly parallel in open position.

    though i'd prefer it to be more ass heavy, it is a good flipper, but a little weird because most of its mass is toward the pivots, makes it a little faster despite its weight. (here's a much wordier explaination:)

    but i have have other balis with a shitty zen nub that i enjoy more.

    Build quality is great. It's not a fantastic flipper since the blade is wide near the tang area and a little short compared to the handles.

    Thanks! I’m looking at it more as another addition to my edc rotation, and not as a flipper. So definitely good to hear about the build quality.

    It would be a great EDC. Very utilitarian blade shape.

    I just ended up ordering one. I haven't had a bali since the crappy ones I had from fairs back in the 90s, and wanted one primarily for edc/use, but would still be fun to flip occasionally. How do you like yours? How has the blade been in use?

    Yeah it's a knife. Bury it in the ground. 20 years who knows.

    great edc but not the best flipper, it has floating washers which is cool but dosent really allow for better tolerances, no tap tho. if you want my opinion get a Trident thats my favorite knife from EOS

    I have one with an all new second set of hardware from EOS if anyone wants to trade. Somewhere around 300 TV. DM if interested.
