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.

Best fire steel I've seen. Only takes a few strokes to throw a good amount of sparks, although I'm sure I can do it better with practice. I'm very pleased with this product.

This review is late in coming, but I want to thank the FireSteel guys for this AMAZING fire starting tool. It's so reliable - especially with that palm scraper - and it was simple to teach the kids how to use it.
The GobSpark Armageddon will last juat about forever. It's something our family keeps in each vehicle for emergencies. Excellent product at a seriously reasonable price!

Got to use this piece of gear camping for 10 days in Montana in mid June '14. It was the go-to fire starter on the trip. Just make sure you apply some good even pressure as you scrape the steel - you will be rewarded with Lots of good sparks. Our boys (10-14 year olds), practiced over and over with it until they got it down pat - still hardly any wear was noticed. The larger size and orange color make it handy and easy to find. Will definitely have a spot in my essential backpacking gear from now on. Good piece of kit!

FireSteel is my primary means of starting a fire, Everything else is back-up.

I have several sizes and configurations of firesteel.com ferro rods. They are all absolutely tops. Great sparks and easy to use. Many sizes and options to fill all needs.

I purchased the gob spark Armageddon and it has lived up to its name. It has been so easy to start a fire with this thing that I now actively look for reasons to use it. My 13 year old has gained complete confidence in his ability to start a fire with the gob spark,even in damp conditions. We now practice regularly with less than ideal conditions and have been 100 percent successful . This tool is an absolute must have item .

I've tried quite a few fire starters of this type. I never realized how weak they were until I ran a striker across this monster. I really like the handle too. It fits pretty well in my old paws, and I think it looks cool too. Forget all the others, buy this one.

Great back up fire starter. Puts out gobs of sparks as stated. Keep a little bit of tinder or one of the magnesium rods they sell and you have a great fire starter. You should always have a couple of ways to start a fire, and this is a great choice.

I have never started a fire with sparks before. I tried to ignite some dry leaves and a few flakes of magnesium with no success with the Gobspark. I got some dry link and with one stroke it caught fire. Awesome. This is going into my pack as my first choice for starting a fire. Easy to hold with gloves on and the bright color makes it easier to find in the darkness.
