Looks like you are after "rope knurls" and suchlike, Lou. I think they may be hard to find nowadays, but you could try making your own:

I did long time ago that kind of ropeknurl for a friend. I used rotary file (cylindrical burr) instead at 45 decree angle to form notches, luckily I have an universal head on my milling machine.

The end product worked like a charm and produced parts for cane fly rods.

This herringbone was harder to produce, I tried to make a scissor type that could be tiltted and would cut both knurls at the same time....I had few form tools to cut brass blank to correct shape and then I tried to cut those herringbone patterns....hard to get everything just right.
