Progress on my 2nd kitchen knife - Kiritsuke

hi guys

Really wanted to share this with you.
I was planning to take a small break from knife making since the drawer is already full of bushcraft knives, and I wasn't feeling for making a new one.
But then i though why not make a kitchen knife that i actually get to use!

So as my first kitchen knife i mad a small honesuki and then i wanted to go bigger!

This is as far as i have come on my Kiritsuke project:
Steel: 80crv2
Thickness: 3,2 mm (1/8")
Length: 20 cm (7.9")

I did some updates to me 4x36 grinder so this is the first bevel i have ever made not using a file!

Then i made a small radius platen from some old oak wood, and this is the first hollow grind i have ever made:

I think its might have to small a radius on the platen, because the hollow seems a bit deep.

I was expecting to mess up the blade the instance I touched the platen, but it went way better than expected.
My finest belt i have for the grinder is 80 grid, so it is going to take some time handsanding this hollow.. :-)

I opted out of doing a taper on the blade, i can't really wrap my head around the process and i thought this project had enough of a challange in it.

Any pointers you can give me going forward?
