    Yes there is such a knife, but first you have to ask yourself 2 more questions.

    1) How much am I willing to spend?

    2) How big of pocket knife do my local laws permit?

    If you have an open budget or you're not sure, I suggest you check out:

    You will find the best folding knives broken down by price ranges $25, $50, $100 and $200. If there are no limits on the blade size in your area and you want the meanest knife with a clip, then try Cold Steel Rajah II, it's like having a sword in your pocket.

    Personally, I would go for something more practical like Spyderco ParaMiliatry2 (costs about $115). If that's too expensive, then go with Spyderco Tenacious or Kershaw Ken Onion. If you are on real tight budget, then I would go with recommendation for a budget folder: CRKT Drifter, it's razor sharp, tough and real cheap. Here are the specs:

    You will never be concerned with the Patriot Self Defense program that you will think it is here .

    The Patriot Self Defense plan is just a very clear to see and to follow. That you do not need to be a genius or some sort of fighting techinques specialist because the program is perfect for the average guy.

        An enormous point may be the savings presented here. If you were to take self-defense classes or employ a teacher of some kind, you'd invest hundreds and hundreds a lot more than you spend here to have the same amount of information and all of this easily , in your house at your own personal time.

    A proper knife use for self defense does not use a stab but a slice. Presentation looks are also important for self defense.

    Serrated will cut a belt, not as good as a dedicated belt hook knife, which usually also has a window punch on it, but useful.

    Spyderco blades will hold up to a ton of use making spears, digging, etc.

    I know you said pocket clip but hear me out on this one. This has been the best knife I've ever purchased. The blade is shape, and slow to dull. I've use it for cleaning up fatty meat, cutting clothe materials and keep it on me for self defense in situations where I'm unable to carry a firearm. It comes with a convenient fitted sheath and neck strap, and has an awesome design making it very small so that only the blade sticks out when grasped in a closed fist, thumb on blade striking position. This would be perfect for a inner thigh slice on someone you were needing to defend yourself against or for any other non jabbing defense. And being under your chest and sitting directly on your sternum it's quickly reached by going under shirt or with a quick pull up of the tether it's on.
