That's absolutely normal. I'm surprised your acquaintance doesn't realise that if it was straight it would bash into the awl and wouldn't close properly.  :D

Superb Swiss engineering!

All Pioneers, Farmers, Soldiers and SI's will look the same.

Yes the Pioneer solo is the only 93mm with a straight blade, as far as I know.

Not every Solo has a straight blade, some (most?) have the crinked blade.

Sadly, it seems the majority of the Solos out there now have the crinked, non-centered blade.  It really sucks too, because that blade looks so stupid in there.

Really, I didn't know that.  I have only one solo and it's straight.  It did always strike me as surprising that they made this different blade for one fairly uncommon 93mm model.

There's a name for that construction method... let me see if I can find it.
Do you mean asymmetrical versus symmetrical?

Nope. Meant "crinking"

Reviving old threads has been a thing as of late, and I figured this was a prime candidate. Lots of good info in here!
