I can't think of anything in current production that meets all of your criteria "non slip rubbery feeling handle, thumb stud manual release, the large almost 4" blade, the hidden auto release button and just the beefy size of the knife"
The new Benchmade 2750 Adamas is the closest I can think of. It lacks the D/A feature. However, it is lefty friendly and actually a little "beefier" than the D2.
The Microtech Select fire is D/A, but the blade isn't as long as the D2 and it lacks the non-slip handle. The design of the blade and handle is love-it-or-hate-it and the price makes it somewhat impractical as a user.
