I've seen the record 8 speed cassettes on ebay, they are a bit more expensive than the steel
athena cassettes but you get what you pay for, eh?
I've always shied away from the Ti cassettes, they were always out of my budget
Excel sports has some 8 speed cassettes about 50 bucks but they don't specify if they
are record level or not and I can't tell from the photos.
This is the normal steel freehub:
this is the Ti freehub:

according to Branford bike you can use a 9 speed cassette with a little modification,
they also state the Ti cassettes are no longer in production (and will cost more).
Edit: Just read this at Branford:
It is best to use Campagnolo 9 speed loose cassette cogs on Campagnolo Record/Shamal 8 speed Ti style cassette bodies. You will need to file a small notch in each 9 speed cog to have it fit perfectly.
so your Shamal cassette used the Ti version, that means either ebay or file a notch.
