As to your question I don't know of any specific claim about a size, but its important that the used knife is sharp enough so that one might be able to do the slaughtering with only one try! – Medi1Saif Aug 13 '18 at 5:46

I asked this question to the imam of my mosque and he said that there are no specifications about the size of the knife. Although it is recommended the knife should be sharp enough so that the animal could be sacrificed easily without giving him/her much pain.
