    Need help with finding a Spyderfly

    Could anybody help me to trace a NIB Spyderco Spyderfly ? It's a pity I missed the chance to get that knife and I miss balisong flipping alot.

    Are they still traceable in reasonable price or should I totally forget about the idea, because it's impossible ?

    I would love to find spyderfly in some store which have international shipping, maybe someone could help ?

    I'm unclear about the legality of their sales but they seem to pop up for sale on eBay quite frequently.

    eBay is your best bet by far. I had my first fly stolen (it was a VG-10 version too... if I weren't so macho I would have wept :-P), and I managed to find a new one there. Albeit, NOT a VG-10 version, but NIB. Those who still have those seem reluctant to give them up. I can definitely appreciate the compulsion to have a bali though. If I didn't have my BM (nobody hurt me... they make good balis) and my Bradley I would have had a nervous breakdown.

    Thanks for all your replies, I've already traced one thanks to one forumite

    And to make things clear - balis are not illegal here in Poland - I hope that because of that fact no rules have been broken.

    A dumpster? You have issues dude. Man I wish this was a heavy metal forum right now so you would get the responses you truly deserve.

    As most members of this forum will recall, Spyderco had to forfeit a bunch of butterfly knives to ICE in 2007; they were estimated to be worth around $400,000. I don't know what ICE did with all those knives. Maybe they melted them down, gave them as gifts, or simply threw them away.

    To give tomahawk23 the benefit of the doubt, I assumed that his post was referring to this but I could be wrong.

    Mark has a point in that this thread probably should have been over in the "Restricted Items" area. Since the OP is in a foreign nation and there are not export regulations/laws I am aware of which would keep a Spyderco dealer/distributor from shipping to his nation, and since Jordan is a 13 Bravo in the U.S. Army (how is Fort Bliss these days?) and is able to purchase 'flys and autos, this is actually a pretty tame thread when it comes to the "restricted" stuff.
