cookies - wolfzahne pan? (specialty baking pans)

Does anyone know a source for the special baking pan used to bake wolfzahne?

Wolfzahne are a traditional German cookie that my mother has made at Christmas for years. They are vanilla flavored cookies with hazelnuts, and get their name (wolf teeth) from their long, thin shape, which comes to a point at the end.

Traditionally, these should be baked in a special pan which is zig-zag profile: the batter rests in the valleys of the pan, which makes the resulting cookie is long and thin and is triangular- shaped in cross section, and this also produces the point at the end. Most recipes instruct you to pipe the batter from a bag onto a flat baking sheet, but this produces more of a worm shape. I want wolfzahne, not worms.

My mother obtained her pan a long time ago from a friend who lived in Germany for a short time, and I don't know where to look domestically.

I can't seem to locate one online, buI there may be a European grocery somewhere that carries esoteric baking things - any suggestions either way?
