I carry a pocket knife, that's it. Not trained to use one for fighting.

I don't. I live in Sweden. Over here it's illegal to carry a knife in public areas.
Also, there are no permits to wear concealed weapons.
The only way to have a gun here is if you are shooting with a registered shooting club.
Then you start with a .22 for 6 months. After that you can use a 9mm or other guns for another 6 months. After that you can apply to get your own gun. If you get accepted. You can have the gun in a gunlocker at your apartment/house. You are only allowed to take it out when you go to a shooting range.
Sorry for the OT.
Sometimes I carry a knife, sometimes I don't. I carry it for utility reasons, not primarily as a defensive weapon.

I don't carry a knife, but I'm considering it. Does anyone have any suggestion on a good knife?

Well, I dont carry a knife and probably never will. I feel fairy confident that my 38 will never fail. I love my 1911's and think they are very reliable, but for defense, my PERSONAL preference is the revolver. Point and shoot. period.
I don't carry a knife for defense. I carry a Swiss Army small knife for utility.
642 in Crossbreed, 8:30. Two speed strips in back left pocket. Money clip and keys in left front pocket. Phone in right front, and Kershaw tip up in back right pocket. If I have the leatherman, it is in it's case on the belt at about 3:30. I have minimal training in knife fighting, but my kershaw goes everywhere, even clips on my swimming trunks. I figure it's better than nothing, and I use it as a cutting tool almost every day, so I am quite accustomed to it being in my hand.

I do not carry a blade. I started having to wear a tie and go through a metal detector every morning and stopped after about the five thousandth time explaining that it was just a ity bitty pocket knife (2" long folder) and LEGAL.
Now I don't carry one (even though I don't go through the detector very often any more) because I'm tired of feeling like Batman wearing a bat-utility belt.

I always have my trusty Swiss Army knife, actually purchased in Switzerland, with me. As far as a defensive knife, I haven't carried one since I kept a Buck Knife folder on my LBE back in my Army days...

My problem is, I hate carrying tons of crap in my pockets. In fact, id rather go with nothing in my pockets at all.
But, since thats not possible. I have my wallet, a small pocket knife(used as a tool, and only carried sometimes) a small LED light (only carried sometimes), a USB Flash drive( I use that for work, as a PC Tech) and my keys, which I never put in my pockets, I tuck the remotes into my waistband or tuck the keys into the pocket. They are too large to put wholly into my pocket. I do not carry a knife as a weapon.
I should mention though, that I usually wear cargo type pants..if I do use pockets, its never the two fronts, just the sides and back.
Have you considered a TDI? They are small-ish, and are very ergonomic. It would have a happy home on your belt, out of the way of your pockets, but it's small and conceals very easily. They are versatile little knives, and can be had for around $40. Just a thought. I carry a folder clipped to right front pocket..
