Fixed Blade or Folder for a Self-Defense Knife?

Do you carry a fixed blade or a folder? Does what's legal where you live affect your choice?

I carry a small fixed blade on my belt in a Kydex sheath I made for it myself, but in the back of my mind I do worry that I might get dinged by a cop because it's not a folding knife and thus won't be seen as a utility blade.

    2.9” pocket folder here. But my training and practice with it as a defensive tool are limited. Don’t think there are many legal issues here in AZ but I am forced to travel to CA where defending oneself is frowned upon by the local politicians.
