Make upwards of 20,000 fires from one GobSpark™!
Invented by FireSteel.com to maximize your grip on this large FireSteel, you'll get the biggest most robust gobs of sparks you have ever seen from a FireSteel.
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 FireSteel Handle attached to a big World famous FireSteel.com FireSteel.
But there is much more:
And you can choose a great FireSteel Scraper:
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. Hows that for product testing!"
To use this special FireSteel Handle (see video below as well as the pictures)
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.
This great piece of American-made 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 a GobSpark Armageddon or just want a Palm Scraper, you can purchase the Palm Scraper separately.

First I tried the cheap fire steels. you know the ones, buy a knife and get a firesteel free. What a joke. After trying your firesteel I will never use anything else.

I ordered the Bright Orange one for winter. I know the how good they are and if you don't well They are amazing!!! I make sure I have one at Work, Home, Car you name it, I have one of these there. I would say if you have a black handled one, order the Bright orange one you will never loose it. And folks don't skimp out on the striker, Its sharp and protects it Extremely well designed. Ron thank you once again for a awesome product!!

This is my first fero rod and I got lucky and scored a Cadillac! I've only had a chance to use it once, but once I removed the black outer layer, there was a shower of sparks with every strike!

I've used a lot of fero rods and with out a doubt this is the best. I wouldn't go out in the wilderness w/o out it. It's become on of my go to gifts, and everyone I've given it to has been very happy...

What can I say, this firesteel (GobSpark Armegedon) is perfect. I got the striker and in orange (nice job Ron) it's easy to find if it's dropped anywhere, easy to hold and striking is easy resulting in Gobs of sparks hence the name (GobSpark). I would recommend the Gob Spark to anyone "Get It You Won't Regret It"

It is well designed to give the user a good purchase so that producing a shower of sparks does not take much effort. My wife found it very easy to use.The gobspark and palm scraper are excellent and should be a part of everyone's gear.
I purchased 4 of these with my first order after watching the video. It was a good investment.

I got this for my wife who has a disability. I am very impressed with the size and ease but with the lack of additional weight.
I wrote a review and sent it to my friends and several of them stated they have purchased it as well. This is the review I sent them:
Ok so I'm a sucker for things sometimes like flashlights and fire starters. I had to buy a new firesteel because after many years I wore mine all the way thru and it broke. I went to http://firesteel.com/ a company I have used for years. Not only did they have my replacement steel they had a larger unit called the GobSpark which is designed to use with gloves. I also ordered the striker piece to go with it.
It came in a bright orange non tacticool color but hey lets face it campfires are not tactical anyway and when you NEED a fire I want to find this ASAP because as we know time can be limited in making it before the rain hits. The paracord lanyard it came with is blue and we all know how useful paracord is. I retied the paracord to hold both piece so I wouldn't drop one.
The unit is indeed large as seen next to my multi-tool however it weighs a mere 2 1/4 ounces. Ounces equal pounds and on the trail that is critical. The weight IMO is worth it especially in the cold with the number and size of sparks this throws.
My wife liked it and had no issues getting the sparks even with her hands and arm medical issues. So I suppose not only is it a "gloves on" unit it is a bad arthritic day usage or maybe a frozen hands unit. It is relatively expensive at $16 however I see this lasting dang near forever as the small one took me years to wear out and only broke after I responded to a fight at work while wearing it.
Anyway that's my 2cent review!

I have owned numerous types of flint steel. I saw a review on the gobspark and thought it looked good. I decided to buy it and try it for myself and was amazed at the shower of sparks it threw out. starting fires is awesome with this cause water can't keep this baby from sparking. I have purchased 2 more since, and will be buying more as gifts for others who like to hike, camp or just like to start fires.

I recently discovered Firesteel.com and ordered several different items to try out. All of which rate top marks in my opinion. The Gobspark Armageddon is the best fire steel I've ever picked up. It's almost like magic, it works so well. POOF...... fire. As long as you know how to get a fire bundle ready to receive a spark, that is. Regardless of that, the quality of these tools will make your life easier no matter what experience level you're at. They even come with 550 cord lanyards instead of the cheap little nylon string. Nice touch. Firesteel.com products are leaps and bounds better than the impostor's being sold in retail land, and the guy that runs it strikes me as a down to Earth fella that I'd be willing to bet that he'd do right by you if there's an issue. We all know how rare that's getting to be. Thumbs up on Firesteel.com
