I would recomend a a K-bar. They are tough, realiable, hold and edge well, and can do everything from help you skin a deer, to building a shelter.
If I could afford it, I would invest in a good pocket knife, or a quality multitool, either leatherman or gerber. It doesn't have to be the biggest,
baddest boy out there, but a couple of extra blades, and awl and screwdrivers could come in real handy.
