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.
Victorinox Dessert Warrior Donut Classic SD
Offering more than half a dozen tools and functions in a 2.28”, 0.80oz package, the Victorinox Dessert Warrior Donut Classic SD represents a lighthearted take on a beloved and highly-pocketable Swiss Army Knife that sees its Cellidor construction handle scales cloaked in a sprinkled pink scheme on the front — complete with a frosted blue Victorinox logo — and a golden brown frosted donut motif on its back that also sports a Blade HQ logo. 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.
Zippo x Blade HQ Exclusive Glow-In-The-Dark Dessert Warrior Lighter
Created through a collaboration between our go-to online knife retailer and the iconic Bradford-based lighter company, the Zippo x Blade HQ Exclusive Dessert Warrior Lighter is a standard brass construction windproof lighter that features a special edition donut-themed finish with a pink body and a frosted blue cap. Made in America, this lighter’s Dessert Warrior-adorned all-metal cover also glows in the dark. What’s more, this lighter’s cover also accepts electric arc flame and butane inserts.
Big Idea Design Pocket Pro Pen
Measuring just 4.125” in length, the Big Idea Design Pocket Pro is an auto-adjusting everyday carry pen that’s machined from titanium and cloaked in a pink donut pattern. Utilizing a telescopic twist mechanism that adjusts the length of the pen, this Dessert Warrior-spec writing tool also accepts more than 100 different refill cartridges. Tipping the scales at only 0.70oz, the pen also comes paired with a reversible titanium pocket clip with a “frosted blue” finish.
Lynch Northwest All Access Pass V1.0
Designed and made in America by Lynch Northwest — a boutique Rockford, Washington-based knife and EDC outfit headed up by Casey Lynch — the Lynch Northwest All Access Pass V1.0 Pink Sprinkled Donut Series #1 is a pry bar and multi-tool that’s precision machined from a solid block of titanium before being fortified via a Dessert Warrior-style Cerakote finish. Limited to just 300 units worldwide, this 4” item features a bottle opener, nail puller, and a flat head screwdriver — all while weighing just 1.06oz. Completing the package is a blue pocket clip with a matching titanium construction.
