"I usually carry 2 or 3 knives when I'm in uniform," says senior conservation officer, Julie Lininger. "I also have other knives that I carry with me in my vehicle, ATV, and boat." Part cop, part game manager, Lininger's job sees her constantly reaching for a knife. Her overall favorites are a Benchmade Barrage 580 assist and an older Benchmade, which is her "the catch-all tool for opening packages, cutting rope, pulling teeth for aging mountain lions, bears, wolves, etc." Of course, she needs knives for gutting, skinning, and quartering animals, too. She cuts up a lot of animals.
