Knife - Perfect for duck hunting?

Good day there, everyone! As a past time, I do some blacksmithing, and some bladesmithing too. Money's tight saving for university, so I've elected to craft my presents this year for christmas. My brother in law is an avid duck hunter, and I've never tried it. I want to make him a custom knife. From all the duck hunters out there, what makes a good knife for duck hunting? I can't even begin to image what it would have, how big it should be, what the handle should be, etc. Any help would be appreciated, thanks a lot!

My ideal duck hunting knife would be one with a heavy 4 inch to 5 inch blade (something you can whack a small tree limb if you need to clean a wad or mud out of barrel). It would also have slot and phillips screwdriver, bottle opener and a punch blade ( like an awl) which would be something you could use to punch out your trigger pins or pry a hull out of your barrell. The type handle would not matter to me.
