This is one of those factors of collecting that can be a matter of personal inclination, but you do need to be mindful that your antique silver flatware may lessen in value if you modify the knife blades.

6. Repair

Dents, or general types of damage can be repaired by a silversmith. A silversmith is also skilled for replating silver flatware pieces. The cost can be expensive for more common items, but it is definitely worth it to restore rare antique silver flatware pieces. cut to look like ice cream forks or a sugar spoon was altered to resemble a sugar sifter. As your skills improve, look for signs of modification and avoid buying those modified pieces.
