Everyday Carry: Sprinkled

Popularized by a certain Springfield nuclear powerplant worker, the sprinkled pink donut motif has the ability to be an unmistakably playful spin on just about any item it adorns — everyday carry gear very much included. And while it’s admittedly a seemingly unconventional choice for an EDC colorway, this so-called “Dessert Warrior” scheme has quickly become a cult fan favorite, with these pink and blue, sprinkle-clad items flying off of the proverbial shelves. In an effort to highlight some of the best items from this idiosyncratic EDC collection, we’ve pieced together a load out of our favorite Dessert Warrior kit for this week’s everyday carry spread; Sprinkled.

Perfect for attaching to a keychain, this Classic SD variant features a pen knife, a nail file, scissors, a key ring, tweezers, and a toothpick.
