    Taiwan import. Some sold under the name National, some sold under other names. That same one was available with points. Butt cap is ABS, not ivory.

    Yeah. I couldn't remember where I've seen a similar design and finally it hit me. It looks a bit like a poor attempt at replicating the butt sleeve of the Schmelke R4 cue from the early 1990s:

    Actually, there is a cuemaker that used these Schmelke cues as blanks. It is possible that this is one of them. I can't remember who, but I will certainly look for his name. That forearm is nice wood, so it is possible.

    Just found it. It was Tom Reed.
