This is one of those sides of collecting that can be a matter of personal preference, but you do need to be aware that your antique silver flatware may decline in value if you modify the knife blades.

6. Repairs

Dents, or general types of damage can be repaired by a silversmith. A silversmith is also skilled for replating silver flatware pieces.
