Pros and Cons of Thick Mitred Edge Quartz Counters?

Hi there! We're considering doing a thickened mitred edge on the quartz counters for our new kitchen island (which is large - 119" x 41"). I love the look of the thick edge on big islands, but I've been reading some stories about bad fabrication, chipped edges, etc. and now I'm starting to rethink the idea. We've got two active boys, a busy household, and we use our kitchen a TON. The fabricator we're using is supposed to be very reputable, but now I'm nervous about the durability and concerned that I could end up with chips in the counter edge. We're leaning towards doing a white calacatta marble-look quartz, from a company like MSI, LG, or Pental, if that makes any difference. What has your experience been with thickened mitred edge quartz counters? Thanks!
