I think a smaller buck folder with a drop point blade would be more appropriate first choice.  I've always found the tip of a clip point to scratch or cut things unintentionally due to the upswept blade.  A knife like the buck 501 "squire" or even the "prince" would probably be more likely to be carried.  Spend the extra $13 and spring for the S30V steel as it's far superior to 420.  The best thing about buck knives is probably their heat treatment by Bos.  

I carried a buck for a long time and then heard about zero tolerance (the 566 specifically).  Their knives have a much stronger frame lock, and the flipper makes for quick one-handed opening.  I won't carry a knife without a pocket clip either, as I don't like things that large floating around in the bottom of my pockets.
