How unhealthy is it to do “hot-knives” with silver knives?

For those who don’t know, hot-knifing is a way of smoking pot or hash where you heat up the tips of a pair of butter knives using a stovetop element, and then burn a small ball of pot/hash by squashing it between the tips and directly inhaling the resultant smoke.
I did a lot of hot-knifing as a teen and my main set of knives to use were silver. Could this cause more health effects than using a regular set of stainless steel knives?
