Silver soldered simply refers to the soldering wire used to connect 2 metals, which is different from "soft" soldering which usually is a tin/lead soldering filler. Silver soldering which contains actual silver metal is used in applications requiring higher heat and usually some sort of a flame or carbon arcing to complete. The home soldering kits are those that require considerably lower heat and thus use tin-lead alloy wire to complete the solder.
