My carbon steel knives have worn down through the years I have used and 
sharpened them until they are much shorter than when new.  And one recently lost a 
tip.  It has become very thin and lost a couple of inches in length, and 
developed a real arc in its blade, but I am sorry its tip is gone.  Of course 
anything that has been in constant use for 40 years or so does show wear and tear.  
I love these knives and hope they last out my time.   I don't want to have to 
start over with new knives.
