Life is too short to hunt with an ugly dog or gun
Maintain a balance of nature, use a beautiful gun when shooting a beautiful bird

If for hunting, you might consider narrowing it down to a fixed blade knife. That's what I carry when hunting, because 1) They are easier to keep clean- just wipe on my pants, no dealing with getting blood and guts out of it, and 2) Easier to deal with 1 handed and when you're done just drop in the sheath. In hot weather, I typically open up my birds within 30 minutes of killing them, and use a stick to pull the guts out, so I like being able to just grab it out the sheath, cut, and put it back in the sheath. But any type of hunting or camping I don't carry a folder. I use a $2 harbor freight metal box cutter and cheap razor blades to make initial incisions on legs of coyotes.
I think a $40 budget is plenty. I've never spent more than $50 on a knife, and that was just because it was a $250 hand made knife and the guy must not have known it. Cold Steel makes some very nice knives in your price range. I have the outdoorsman lite, which is sharp enough to fillet fish with. This is the knife I use around camp, and for fishing. It's stainless. Not really good for skinning because it's too large.
Here are some knives I like:
http://coldsteel.com..._STAINLESS.aspx $28.74 (I kind of like this as a bird knife. I'd make a little gut hook out of a coat hanger and bend it around the pinky loop.)
The knife I always have on me is just a regular swiss army knife model called the hiker. Couldn't live without it.
