    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
