The problem with a tanto point for general use is that the part of the edge where the angle changes abruptly dulls very quickly, and they are difficult to sharpen. The tanto might be stronger if you envision having to pry something, or jam the tip into something hard.
A clip point is better for cleaning game or skinning.
IMO, knives are for cutting. If you want to stab something use an icepick or a dirk.
