If the ability to make fires is important to you, this is the FireSteel to get.

People are calling our GobSpark Armageddon "the best firesteel in the world".

But don't take our word for it: read the reviews below and decide for yourself.

It's not "just a firesteel".  It's a firemaking system.

The GobSpark Armageddon FireSteel starts with an ulta-unique and proprietary FireSteel handle attached to a big world-famous FireSteel.com Armageddon 3.0 FireSteel.

But there is much more:

  • A BIG, ROBUST firesteel on a Robust Handle - the firesteel is a full 3/8ths-inch in diameter and 3-inches long
  • An innovative handle designed for the firmest grip - even when your hands are cold or wearing gloves.

The included FireSteel.com Palm Scraper completes your kit:

  • The innovative Palm Scraper™ handle with an ultra-hardened alloy blade - rave reviews for the shower of sparks it creates when applied to the GobSpark.  Grasp the Palm Scraper handle in the palm of your hand or glove for a great grip even when wearing gloves or your hands are numb from the cold.

Easy to Use with Gloved or Cold Hands

Imagine trying to start a fire with hands numbed from the cold or while wearing gloves. A small blocky firesteel handle may be very difficult to hold onto.

But using a GobSpark™ Armageddon and Palm Scraper presents no problem, even with gloved hands.

I KNOW these work because I use them myself in the Great North Woods, where winter temperatures routinely dip to minus twenty degrees and lower.  No need to remove my gloves to light my fire!  My hands remain toasty warm inside my mittens.

In fact, if the GobSpark Armageddon didn't work, I'd be dead.  How's that for product testing?

Easy to Aim Your Sparks onto the Tinder

To use this special FireSteel Handle (see video below as well as the pictures)

  1. Place the handle in the palm of your hand so that the firesteel lays between your index and middle fingers.
  2. Position your hand palm-down and place the FireSteel Rod next to your tinder.
  3. While holding the firesteel handle tightly, scrape the FireSteel rod hard and fast in one fluid motion

This will produce a massive shower of white hot 5500 degree F sparks aimed directly at your tinder.

The special shape of the handle allows for creative attachment to your belt or gear.

The FireSteel Palm Scraper™

This great piece of FireSteel.com gear securely snaps onto your GobSpark Armageddon FireSteel, serving double purpose as a protective case.  The rectangular shape fits snugly into the palm of your hand or glove, so that you can scrape sparks from your firesteel even with heavy gloves on your hands or when your fingers are so cold you can hardly move them - potentially a life saver when you are freezing cold or wet from an overturned boat etc.

If you already own any one of our FireSteel.com Firesteel and just want the convenience of a Palm Scraper, you can purchase the Palm Scraper separately.

Here is a testimony that came recently came in:

"I teach primitive firemaking to Boy Scouts, showing them all sorts of technologies that don't require a match, some dating back hundreds of years. In the firesteel section, I show them a few cheap versions, and the circle comes in closer. Then I pull out my GobSpark Armageddon and throw a few sparks and they instantly jump back as sparks dance down the picnic table and fall off the other side. Really, REALLY impressive!"    -Mike B

And another:

"As close to perfection as I've seen in a ferro rod system"

"Nothing compares to these. The real test, with gloves on, half frozen hands, shivering, and in the dark...the Gob Spark is still easy to use and always gets the job done. Typically one strike = fire (if you have done your job and prepared your tinder, of course) Commercial tinder, improvised tinder, even slightly damp tinder, they all light with ease. The big, long lasting sparks are essential for damp, cold environments.

I've demonstrated the Gob Spark in full, brilliant sunlight and still get a "WOW!" from those that see it in action. Gob Spark is the name and giant gobs of sparks are what you get.

But a better testament to just how good this product is: I grab it first, before the Bic and before the matches. It's just that damn good.

I really can't tell how long it will last. I've struck sparks with it several hundred times and it barely shows wear. Sure there are bright streaks and a little flattening of the rounded profile, but that amounts to negligible wear so far. It will last many years for me and probably a lifetime for most.

It is big and the handle makes it bulky, but when your hands are stiff from cold and you are shivering and unsteady, the large handles on the Gob Spark and it's striker make fire starting a simple task instead of a chore.

This is the best of the best."

Thank you, Steve.  You've expressed exactly why I invented the GobSpark!  - Ron.

    This is an awesome piece of gear! It took one scrape to light a cotton ball.
    Thank you for having quality products available!


  4. Awesome fire steel !

    Posted by Larry Griffith on May 9th 2018

    It looks like you are welding! It puts out long lasting sparks very true to its name gobspark. Thanks firesteel.com for an awesome product.


  5. Very solid.

    Posted by Sean Hewer on May 9th 2018

    The two halves join together very nicely, and it does exactly what they say. Major sparks!

    Good stuff.


  6. Awesome!

    Posted by Unknown on May 2nd 2018

    I’m a customer for life! Couldn’t be happier with the gobspark Armageddon. Very easy to use and provides great Sparks. I will only buy my fire starters from firesteel.com!


  7. SUCCESS!!

    Posted by Jason Miller on Apr 24th 2018

    Received the tool this afternoon and had a fire started within minutes. No joke! I've purchased several other inferior products in the past and never was able to get anything to ignite. Thank you FireSteel.com for your great product and thank you Joe Robinet for recommending this company.


  8. Nicely executed

    Posted by Jim Wright on Apr 12th 2018

    The Gobspark Armageddon from FireSteel is the perfect addition to your pack whether you are going camping, or find yourself reaching for your bug out bag due to an emergency, this will make starting a fire quick and easy. It is super lightweight, easy to carry and when you’re done with it it snaps back together keeping everything together ready for the next time you need it. Definitely one of the best I have found. I recommend this with no hesitation.


  9. Best on the market!

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 8th 2018

    I love this firesteel! I have one of these in every pack I own. It is definitely my go to for starting fires. The beefy 3/8 size and the handle allow me to get great sparks and I can even use it with gloves on. I've tried others on the market before I found FIRESTEEL.COM and there is no comparison to the quality.


  10. Great Fire Starter

    Posted by R Brown on Apr 4th 2018

    Best fire starter I've seen so far. Easy to use and throws A LOT of sparks.

    Great experience ordering and delivery.

    Recommend highly to anyone!


  11. Exactly as Advertised and then some!

    Posted by Dennis Lindsey on Mar 30th 2018

    The Gobspark Armageddon is much better than advertised. Easy to use with gloves still on. Get the palm scraper for a complete kit. Sparks from the Gobspark is like a fireworks display. if something can lite, this tool will do it! HOWEVER.......the best thing about Firesteel .com is NOT their ferro rods though they are the best I've seen. The best part of Firesteel.com is their approach to customer service. I've been on the planet for 62 years. I have watched customer service skills go down the toilet. You know what I mean. Customer service is flourishing at Firesteel.com. You can tell that they sincerely appreciate your business. When was the last time you had THAT feeling? Test them out!


  12. Absolutely love it!

    Posted by Dan on Mar 29th 2018

    Bright orange to make it easy to find, excellent striker throws ridiculous sparks, which gives credence to the GobSpark name. I like how you store the steel inside the handle of the striker to keep it a small, self-contained package and is perfect to throw inside an emergency kit. The handles of both the striker and the ferro rod itself are extremely easy to hold, especially in the cold when you lose some dexterity. Will definitely grab another when this is used up.


  13. Solid product performance

    Posted by sds on Mar 25th 2018

    I'm fairly new to using this type of fire making item. However it is not rocket science either, right? Well, what I found is the quality of the product from materials to manufacturing techniques is what really sets these FireSteel.com fire making products apart. I chose the Armegeddon and it is a solid performer. I don't yet have the technique some folks have so it took a few strikes to get the tinder lit. But that was on me. Once I had it sparking it only took a stroke. Fantastic piece of kit.


  14. Comforting to have the best available when you need it !

    Posted by Frank on Mar 11th 2018

    The Gobspark Armageddan is the best fire steel I have ever used. Combine it with the striker and a special paracord lanyard that can be used as tinder and you have a bulletproof combination for fire starting in any situation.


  15. Excellent fire starter

    Posted by Happy Camper on Mar 10th 2018

    This is an excellent firestarter that throws excellent sparks. With the handle it is super easy to use.

    The customer service here is the best I’ve ever seen. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful people!!!

    Can not recommend the company and products enough!


  16. Great survival tool

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 19th 2018

    Throws reliable sparks. It just works!


  17. Great but handle will separate from handle

    Posted by Colter on Feb 16th 2018

    This is an excellent product. By far the best faro rod I’ve ever used. I’ve now bought four different versions and I love them all. The only complaint I have is that the gob spark Armageddon will fall out of the handle eventually. I wish FireSteel would correct this issue. It didn’t take long at all for it to happen either. Probably with in two times of being in the field. I could see the rod falling out and being lost for good. I hope they fix this issue. If they do, I’ll be buying a hell of a lot more.


  18. Gobspark with backup

    Posted by Ed Hackie on Feb 15th 2018

    I would have included a magnesium block in the kit just for combustible back up but the product is good stand alone


  19. Handle and sheath are the best

    Posted by Richard McConnell on Feb 9th 2018

    The actual firesteel is of excellent quality and gives off huge hot sparks. But the thing that I find most useful is how the handle and striker are contained. This makes it easy to hold while using and provides excellent protection while in storage. I also appreciate the bright orange color of the plastic handle and sheath as I am one who tends to set something down without thinking and if that object happens to be black, brown, olive green or camo, then I will have a hard time finding it. So even if dropped or set down the blaze orange color will make it stand out in the drab background.


  20. Hard Core Reliable

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 18th 2018

    The firesteel that can be counted on in all conditions. Just had the opportunity to field test under conditions that are as subfreezing and wet as it gets. It just works.
