You might think about the Native. It is a tough little knife, small enough to put in a pocket out of sight of nervous instructors, and large enough to be useful.
An Esee Izula would be a good choice, too. It can also be pocket carried, if need be, but will not break. It is easy to sharpen, even on a coffee mug.
I Pray Heaven to Bestow The Best of Blessing on THIS HOUSE, and on ALL that shall hereafter Inhabit it. May none but Honest and Wise Men ever rule under This Roof! (John Adams regarding the White House)
Follow the Christ, the King,
Live pure, speak true, right wrong, follow the King--
Else, wherefore born?" (Tennyson)
