I don't have a specific brand in mind but you might try a bird & trout type knife for smaller game.

Something like this is what I'm thinking.  It has a smaller blade, & the loop makes it handy to keep at hand when you might not need the blade, like when you're skinning an animal with your hands. 

I haven't used the cold steel version specifically but I have used a similarly designed knife & found it quite handy.

I use a 5" boning knife.  It works for fish, pheasant, and even breaking down a buck.  You can get a ggod one, like a dexter or forschner for about 20 bucks too!

Not much cool factor, but I think a Victorinox stainless steel paring knife is a dandy small game knife. Light, sharp, cheap and useful.  If you want to spend more money, Bob Dozier makes some very nice patterns perfect for small game.

I highly reccommend Gerber.  I have a small folding knife from them that I have used on multiple animals, and the blade is still sharp.  It's just a small folding pocket knife, and it has a pocket clip on it.  It is a little pricey, but I've had it for 3 or 4 years and the knife is the perfect size.  Folded it's about 3.5 inches unfolded, it's just under 6".

Go to and look at their Blackie Collin's designed Bird and Trout knives. They also have a Hunter Scalpel for $19.95 that comes with a fiberglass reinforced neck sheath. I have one of their small game knives that comes with a leather pocket sheath.  It also runs about $19.95 and really holds an edge.  It is perfect for squirrels and is a non-folder so it is easy to keep clean.
