Knife blade problem, cut & sweep.

Haven't been using solidworks not very long (couple of days) so I'm at the point where I know the basic functions but don't really fully understand them. I'm trying do model a knife blade with no real luck and I'm at the point where I feel stupid and sad :)

Problem areas are marked with red. As you can see the cut & sweep dips below the knife blades spine and at the end of the cut the curve seems to be distorted.

This is the part of the blade I'm trying to model ATM.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
