We consider the asymptotic behavior of motion of polygonal convex curves by crystalline curvature in the plane. There appear spontaneously two types of singularity: one is single point extinction and the other is degenerate pinching. We mainly discuss degenerate pinching singularity and show the exact blow-up rate for a fast blow-up solution which arises in an equivalent blow-up problem.
