Help me find discontinued Ikea silverware to purchase new or used!

I need some help finding a discontinued style of Ikea software pictured here and here. As I recall, these are model Ikea/365+ or Ikea PS
They have a brushed, stainless finish and are marked Ikea (made in China) on the back.

These styles were discontined two or three years ago, and I unfortunately only bought one set. This came in a set of 20 pieces (four of each style) but it was also possible to buy separate add on sets of just the smaller size fork/spoon/knife combo, and a whole set of just small spoons.

I haven't had any luck with eBay, and I don't know where else to look. I'd prefer to buy them new, but if you have some and want to get rid of it, I'd be happy to buy them from you! Please help! :)

Ebay item 160076336285 looks like what you are looking for

Be careful with if you are looking for the genuine article. We purchased some replacement silverware from them that was a decent, not great, imitation of the flatware we had. It is only noticeable when they are next to each other. The original is much heavier and balanced. YMMV.

Response by poster: That specific eBay item is not the right type. I've spent time on eBay and Google to no avail.

It is a long shot, but I've been seeing a LOT of Ikea flatware in thrift shops over the past couple of years. It'll take some time searching, but there's always the chance.

It's hit and miss, but maybe give Craigslist a try. Search the "for sale," but also post a Wanted ad.

It's a long shot, but you might get lucky.
