and the unsharpened. Maybe because of BW the sharpened kind of hurts my eyes when I look at it.

What are your settings?

Shutter speed?

Aperature setting?

ISO?

These are the main ingredients to understanding? And the possibilities!

It's fun to play with DOF. My thought is that you should turn the knife around and focus on the sharp (no pun inteneded) end of the knife and have the handle receed into the out of focus range. What ever is in focus is going draw the attention of the viewer. It's all in what you, as the photographer, want your audience to focus in on. That's my 2 cents and I see I have successfully overused the word focus in this paragraph so, go have fun.
