The small knife is more a tool than a weapon, but it is perhaps the best tool of its kind. There is no better choice for delicate cutting work, and it seems the game's tool selection process will favor the small knife, if available, over all other forms of knife for skinning, cookery and crafting applications (as of 3.17). A character who aquires a masterwork small knife will find that the lightweight blade performs admirably for all their knife-based needs.
The knife combat skill modifies damage done by small knives, but attacking with them is best left to an absolute last resort.
URW Game Encyclopedia description
The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by the key) describes the small knife thusly:
An ordinary knife with a blade of about three inches long. The small knife is mainly designed for making fine woodworks. It is also commonly used when cutting ropes, removing birch-bark etc.
