[CentOS] question on cut

I am trying to use cut to tell me the suffix of a file.
for example: echo /home/silentm/log/file.machine.log | cut -d . -f 1-
I was expecting to get .log or log but I get the entire string echoed back.
doing the opposite gave me what I expected:
echo /home/silentm/log/file.machine.log | cut -d . -f 1
I am trying to find a way to test if the file ends in .log?
How might I do that.
