We celebrated National Pink Day last June 23rd, a day when we’re encouraged to wear the warm and frivolous shade. The day was established in 2007 by high school students who wanted to stop bullying and promote understanding among diversified groups. As EDCers, we can also take part by splashing a bit of the hue into our kit. It’s a color that has been associated with hope, harmony, and worthy causes such as breast cancer awareness. In this guide, we’ve compiled a few pink items that you can easily integrate into your daily setup in celebration of National Pink Day, or to keep all year round to add an eye-catching new shade to your EDC.

QSP Parrot

This value-packed budget folder features grippy G10 scales in pink, as well as a tough, 3mm thick, satin-finished 440C steel blade, letting you bring along a highly corrosion-resistant edge that’s also easy to sharpen and maintain. This mid-sized EDC knife tucks in a 3.25" spear point blade into a 4" handle that features a shallow finger choil and a reversible pocket clip. The thumb studs and sturdy liner lock make deployment and retraction simple and straighforward. It’s an easy and affordable way to add a functional pink item to your kit.

Of course, since this is a Victorinox, the robust tweezers and toothpick usually found within the scales of their Swiss Army Knives are also there. This is an easy and practical addition to your wallet or essentials kit, letting you carry a lot of tools in a pocket normally reserved for credit or business cards.
