    As in, do the raised parts look like a small gear when you look at the end, or do they look like a series of straight keys around the shaft. I was thinking involute from the picture as well but didn't realize what was triggering that until Joe pointed out the traces left from the cutter.

    Could be also straight-sided but trapezoidal shape? "exit wound" looks a bit arc shaped but really hard to say from picture.
    Trapezoid and involute tooth can look quite similar on a quick glance.
