What kind of things, if bought thoughtfully and is quality-made, can you purchase once and have your entire lifetime?

For example, I'm in the midst of buying a series of Saddleback Leather Co.'s bags and luggage.  I think they will last longer than me.

Any thoughts?

A Buck knife.

Sure we do. We just don't complain about having to register and pay for the licenses. ;)
Diamonds. Duh.

Thinking about the things in my apartment that are older than I am: Depending on how often you wear it, classically-styled, well-made formal wear. Jewelry generally. Flatware, especially silverware. High-quality furniture. Certain books. Fine china. Winter clothes. Photographs.

In addition to all these, at my parents' house, things older than or about as old as they are: Original artwork (most wasn't bought, though; ancestors created it). My grandparents' marriage license. (I guess they didn't buy that. How about their marriage license as a buy-once item?)
Everything.
Nothing.
Just depends on how well you take care of your stuff.
A razor and, possibly, badger hair brush

1. Razor. Either double-edge safety or straight.
2. Watch. Pocket or wrist. Mechanical or quartz.
3. Fountain pen. From a good manufacturer.
4. At least one good suit.
Good knives. Just bought a MercWorx Sniper Chili in S30V steel. I have no doubts that it will outlive me.
I second this...

My parents had several wedding gifts begin to fall apart at right about their 25th wedding anniversary. Their high-quality, high-carbon knives were among them.
Are you talking kitchen knives? I'm more discussing knives with a more...um...utilitarian/sinister purpose.
Kitchen knives, and it was just the constantly-used paring knife.
