The edge of the gyuto looks quite flat to me. Is it or is it just the angle of the pic?

The suji looks to have a fair bit of belly??

The fowler is on the flat side and slightly sweeps to a curve about 3 inchs from the tip.

The suji starts it curve a little sooner but I would not say it is a lot of belly.

Nice new toys Matt!
The Heiji looks like it has the perfect balance of flat at the back (what is it...4-5"?) and sweep upwards for finishing slices and walking around the board if you need it.
The Fowler looks like a push cutter's dream! Very nice stuff. I'm looking forward to the pics 2.0 :D

Awesome, glad to hear that it got there safe.

Can't wait to see some cutting video (hint)
