Besides wharncliffes, Ive found that Spey blades (and similar) as well was the drop points similar to that of a GEC Bull Nose Sodbuster (almost all flat with the abrupt belly at the tip) are great.
I used to be all about the curves, but this last year I really found preference in knves with little to no belly.
I'm in the opposite boat. If I'm going to have belly, I prefer it to be gradual like a Police 3. Easier to sharpen by a long shot, and more handy for my uses. Spey blades and Spydercos like the Ark, I feel once what I'm slicing reaches that curve, it just wants to slip right off the cutting edge.

Vivi, would you want a SE wharnie or do you prefer PE?
I'm fine with either. I'd buy a SE wharny Endura if they used the Endura 3 handle shape.
I do feel SE wharnies lose out on SE being easier to sharpen by not having to follow the curve of the blade due to the serrations all being ground at the same angle, but that's not a knock against the usefulness of the blade.

thinner, longer, pointier FFG with negative blade angle for me since i cut food primarily with my edc
A negative angle makes a big difference. Increased leverage with no penalty. I can't use designs like the Kershaw Skyline with the same appreciation as I do a Military - they feel designed more for the eye than the hand.
