My 50mm f/1.7 has this strange (not sure if I should call it downright unpleasant) "clawed" bokeh at f/2... it gets better when stopped down and wide-open...

It only happens at f/2, so not much of a worry
That is a very common iris "profile". Some vintage and Soviet lenses have truly strange looking apertures.
