Hi All! Was wondering how long should knives last. I know any knife has to be sharpened regularly, but what is the life expectancy - - or is there a life expectancy? My current knives are over 25 years old and were a gift from my dad who has since passed away. I'm pretty sure they were not the "cadillac" of knives, but were not toss-away's either. I've sharpened them many times over the years (or rather, my husband did that for me, and he did an excellent job of it IMO). None of the handles are loose or warped, but the blades don't seem to be holding a sharp edge as well as they once did. Any of you have any info/thoughts on this? Thanks.
