How Long do Knives Last?

rores28 | Sep 23, 2011 10:30 AM

Over the past year I've begun to cook a lot more with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and other things that need slicing and dicing, and so was considering buying a higher end knife. Currently I have a 11piece set that cost like $30.

I'm willing to spend a good bit of money on a good all purpose knife but I want to know that its the last knife I'd need to buy. I probably about 6-8 meals per week that need things chopped up. Do most high end knives last a lifetime if properly cared for?

Also can anyone link me to a good tutorial for beginners about knives. I've been searching around here and getting some good info, but was wondering if there was a good all-in-one sort of starter video or resource for a complete knife newbie.
