I think I was Oakenwald (hence, Agilwulf's local) *and* at that Laurel
meeting, but "I've slept since then" so I could misremember.  I think
that "shark's teeth" qua *shark's* teeth were considered to be
intrinsically unrecognizable.  That is, they were drawn as jagged
things, but no matter how you draw them, you can't tell by looking
that they're supposed to be "shark's teeth" as opposed to some other
teeth, mountains, whatever.

Is this a household badge?  In period, badges (as used for
affiliation) were fieldless.  Would they consider something along the
lines of "[Fieldless] A shark per pale azure and vert"?
