where to find discontinued spyderco knives

I'm looking for the Spyderco Dyad:



It was discontinued, and I remember seeing it in a sierra trading post catalog late last summer or last fall. I checked e-bay, found one, but I'd prefer to buy new if possible. I googled it, found a few, but most are still going for pre-discontinued prices... ~$150. Sierra Trading Post had it for $75, but I wasn't in the market for a knife back then.

I know there are some knive afficianados on the board, so I'm hoping someone might have an inside track on some good prices. Any help would be appreciated.

I would try a gun show or a knife show, ebay, or online store...most knife store fronts do not have good prices. I get all my knives from either the military (Benchmade AFO Auto..or and a big spyderco police to cut the tape needed to tape up the flightdeck for NVG ops) my personal knives I get from a friend back home in Cali who goes to all the shows... he got me another spyderco police for under $100. way back when they were $175. I think gunshows are your best bet.

The only thing I dislike about the police is the fact that it is silver...too BLING BLING for me ( plus its not that great to use when deployed...don't want too much metal showing)
but, it is a great knife...I like the seraded blade. I also like how slim it is...and I have had one for over 9 ot 10 years and my other I have had for 3. Both in great condition.

I carried this Benchmade Stryker for a couple of years. Best knife I ever had. I gave it to my girlfriend's brother right before he shipped out and have yet to find a decent replacement.



EDIT:
oh and thanks for the link Corey
There used to be a good website where I bought my knives for personal use and work. They've since disappeared. It's good to have another website to look through.
