1/8" end mill suggestions

Hello, all. I am looking for a decent end mill in the 3mm to 4mm diameter range. 1/8" is fine, too. Needs to have a CEL of at least 22mm. Metric or Imperial shank. 2 flute upcut would be preferred, but as long as it can work 22mm hardwoods at reasonably fast feed I'll try anything. I'm nesting parts in some fairly expensive woods, and it is killing me to use my standard 1/4" mills since I could nest a little tighter and squeak out a few more with a smaller mill.
