rtcwhunter - might have found the knife you were looking for. In the Feb/08 issue there is an article titled, "The Tactical Edge." A test panel compared 4 military-style knives - Gerber LMF II Infantry, Spyderco Bill Moran Plain FB01P, SOG Seal Pup Elite, and the Buck Short Nighthawk. From your description it sounds like the Spyderco - black synthetic grips with textured polymer inlays, silver (uncoated) VG-10 blade. Also take a look at their FB02 - it has a drop point instead of an upswept blade.
