yes I know notch is at an angle, i said that already.

But if you look at your two stitch seams on knob and your emblem on top youíll see itís not symmetrical, it appears askew.

Nice catch! It's settled then, its correct but the pattern wasnt put on straight. Guess thats what I get for paying for a knockoff..
I'll just buy a genuine one when this knob inevitably wears out from being made out of cheap chinese leather and plastic.
