The Knights of the Silver Hand were dissolved by Arthas. The ones that remained formed the Scarlet Crusade, unknowingly being led by a demon in disguise. The few that were discharged prior to the events such as Tirion Fordring, teamed up with any non-followers of the Scarlet Crusade along with the Argent Dawn to form the Argent Crusade. No independent segment of Silver Hand still exists, they are all a part of another organization.
Tell that to the dwarves. I recently made a dwarf paladin, and the initial paladin quests talk about being in the Silver Hand.
What other organization are you proposing human and dwarf paladin players are part of, if not simply the Silver Hand?
This is correct. From what I can gather, there seemed to be two parts to the Order of the Silver Hand. One part operated out of Stratholme (Lordaeron) the other operated out of Stormwind. Now, if this conclusion is correct, Arthas could of had the power to dissolve the Silver Hand in Lordaeron, but he had no power when it came to Stormwind's arm of the order.
Why would there be two arms? Dwarfs and Human paladins are told that they are apart of the Silver Hand through past and current in-game quest-lines. If the above conclusion is incorrect, and there was no Stormwind arm of the order, why does it still seem to be operating in current lore? WoW takes place way after Arthas apparently dissolved the order, yet, it seems to be still around.
