I have 2 if the epicurean cutting boards, one for raw meats and the other for everything else. I've been putting them in the dishwasher for 2 years and haven't had a problem with them.
As for knives, i have a couple decent ones from Ikea and a couple my ex-in-laws got from a family of knife makers. They all get hand washed.
I have used the Victorinox w/the vibrox handles and they were just fine
Take lots of naps now. You'll wish you had later.
