It (doesn't) last forever

eLizard | Sep 9, 2013 01:11 PM

I bought my husband, then boyfriend, a Henkel's chef's knife for $100+ in 2001 for his birthday. His birthday is on Friday, and Henkel has bit the dust after 12 years of almost daily use, inconsistent honing, amateur and professional sharpening. That knife doesn't owe me a dime. Question is, how long do your knives last you? I think I read somewhere that some professional kitchens rent their knives because they're so hard on them. Made me feel better about mine not "lasting forever."

Also, thinking about getting this one for him for Friday. What say you?
