If so What Kind?
Yes. SOG SlimJim.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
I carry two. Mini Griptillian and Izula II. Don't leave home without them.
One or two TDI Kabars, and a Kershaw Leek.
Usually a SOG Pentagon Elite II - Sometines a SOG Flash.
If I had it to do all over again - I would buy the newer SOG SPEC ELITE since it is the same knife as the Pentagon but, minus the blade serrations.

I always carry two.
A mid size folder like a spyderco Caly3, Delica, Endura, or SOG Aegis rides in the front pocket, and a multitool like a leatherman or swiss army super tinker rides on the belt.
Spyderco sharpmaker keeps the edges in good shape.
I've usually carried a knife or multi-tool of some sort. Day to day, I've gone from a large multi-tool in a pocket and moving it to my "go" bag.
I now have a Leatherman Skeletool: Leatherman multi-tools: Skeletool CX
...and a Zero Tolerance 0350TS: 0350TS |* ZT Knives
Why? Because I can. I recently found ZT knives...and like them. But they do cut into my gun budget (pun intended)

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
I've always said, never trust a man that doesn't carry a knife.
SOG multitool and a Gerber folder at the moment. Sometimes a fixed Buck.
Planning on ordering an Esee 4 for EDC soon.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
Benchmade 585 "Barrage" mini
Excellent knife and especially like the "Axis" lock.
I carry a folder with the 'wave' opening trick. Really fast. Useful for cutting twine on hay bales - haven't needed it for much else, thank God.
I carry a Kershaw RAM every day.

SOG Trident Black Tini. Although I like Brad426's selection of a SOG SlimJim and have been considering that.

Never look down on anybody, unless you're helping them up.
I carry a Kershaw Blur everyday.
