Wedgwood Minuscule Scratches?

For those of you who have Wedgwood dishes, particularly Wedgwood White, do you notice minuscule scratches on the plates when you hold them up to the right light? I recently bought a couple of Wedgwood White plates to try before buying the entire set. I have only used the plates twice and have run them through the dishwasher twice (using Ecover Automatic Dishwashing Powder). They have not been used harshly, jammed in the dishwasher with things rubbing against them or slid against other plates but yet I see these fine scratches on the plates. Without the right light and sharp eye they are not visible and can barely be felt when rubbing one's finger across one of the scratches. I can't find any mention of this on the Internet so either no one notices, it's not supposed to happen, or it doesn't bother anyone. Am I just being nitpicky and this is normal wear for the dishes? What about Apilco or Pillivuyt porcelain, as opposed to bone China? Does this happen with these dishes as well? For those that use Wedgwood White for everyday use do you still use them when you serve something that requires use of a steak knife? And does the knife damage the finish at all? I know they are supposed to be very durable and would love anyone else's thoughts on the matter while I decide whether or not to buy a whole set.

    I am sorry I don't have a solution for you, but can I just compliment you for spelling "minuscule" correctly? Thank YOU!
