Flook does list this style in his book but there is a not a lot of information about them. Made by several companies including Wade & Butcher, Wostenholm, Joseph Allen & Sons, Maleham & Yeoman. Pressed fiber scales. does yours have any evidence of service use? It would be a broad arrow /|\ or WD often stamped on the spike.
