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

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
