Oh yeah my skates are 2.5 years old and I have a little bit of wear right on the edges. I also had a few eyelets pop out but my LHS replaced them for free.

I personally think Grafs are more of an investment in a longer-lasting piece of gear rather than a more consumable skate that might only last 2-3 years (or shorter if you play a LOT).

But that's my two cents.

Also, be sure to check the radius and pitch compared to your old skates. I had them put back to neutral as they come fairly aggressive on the toes and down to 9' radius (like Bauer) from 11'. That completely screwed up my agility on ice until it was fixed.
