If you consistently overcompressed it , or run fuel without ignition improver and really wind down on the compression screw, then it's quite easy to do with a PAW. Some sizes (eg PAW 09 Bluehead)...

Yep! That's a bad 'en. I have a collection of PAW conrods that look like that. Interestingly the Oliver tigers, Cubs etc don't egg out their little ends.
