Havnt read through all the posts, but pretty much that blade style gives a kind of "Rolling" cut, or slice. A straight edge is meant for push cutting. but when pushing with the belly, after the cut you get a kind of Roll effect with the cut that actually brings about a smooth yet butter like cut. if that makes any sense. think about a downward motion towards the handle in your slice. except it is sort of built into the blade.
