As you have both, there is no downside. 

The advantage to bent, which is also on Japanese hooped chisels, is that they usually cut flush better, and the force on the handle is less likely to cause a chisel to dive.  I find that a nice feature particularly on hooped chisels.  Paring chisels are so long they are easy to control.  As with all nuances it does not much matter, one can get the hang of anything.
