 Product Description

Note: At this time only orange handles are available.

The GobSpark™ Ranger FireSteel by FireSteel.com adds a unique double lanyard hole handle to the popular Ranger FireSteel. 

With a handle that was designed and is injection-molded (manufactured) right here in the United States, the GobSpark Ranger sports a 1/4 inch diameter x 2-1/2 inch long FireSteel that is made from the same world-class, great-gobs-of-sparks-producing formula that our other FireSteel.com FireSteel are famous for.

The design of the small handle allows for a better grip when scraping sparks from your GobSpark Ranger FireSteel.  Your GobSpark Ranger FireSteel will come pre-strung with a FireSteel Super Scraper on a lanyard made from 24-inches of 550-paracord.  (Color of the lanyard will vary.)

We came up with the idea of the GobSpark Ranger FireSteel kit to meet the demand for a cost effective way for our customers to obtain a world-class FireSteel and Super Scraper all-in-one kit.  A favorite of scouting organizations as well as hikers and backpackers who have to watch every ounce that goes into their packs.

The 1/4 inch diameter rod is large enough to produce many hundreds of fires.  It is super easy to hold on to your GobSpark Ranger Firesteel while scraping off sparks due to the way we designed for the lanyard to be strung through the two holes in the handle.  You'll just have to get one to experience the ease with which such a compact piece of kit creates great gobs of sparks.

At this price point you can't go wrong ordering several GobSpark Ranger kits to scatter amongst your gear, vehicle's glove compartment, tool kits, fishing kits, etc. to ensure you can always start a fire when you need one.

  1. Sparky

    Posted by Kevin Dibble on Mar 11th 2018

    Throws lots of sparks easily, perfect size, and was delivered quickly. Lots of great information included with the shipment. Couldn't ask for a better experience!

  2. Great product!

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 11th 2018

    Makes a lot of hot sparks. Gobs of them.

  3. Great firestarter

    Posted by Andrew on Jan 26th 2018

    I purchased this after watching several positive reviews, while looking for a good ferro rod. I was not dissapointed. This thing puts out showers of hot sparks, and is far better than some of the others I’ve tried. You’ll be lighting fatwood, and birch bark in no time.

  4. Shower of sparks

    Posted by Kevin on Jan 23rd 2018

    My wife started a fire in her first try. Throws sparks much better than more expensive rods. Nice product, very fast shipping. No issues at all.

  5. My best ?

    Posted by Roy on Dec 6th 2017

    I use bigger firesteels most of the time, but this one is always with me just in case. My best backup. +

  6. Pease of Mind

    Posted by Mark on Aug 11th 2017

    I have never had a problem starting a fire with fire starters from Fire Steel. I purchased several of the GobSpark Ranger FireSteel for my sons and daugther-in-law, who like to frequent the back country in Wyoming and Yellow Stone. Knowing that they will carry these with them, will give me and I hope them some comfort in the event something goes wrong, they will have the ability to make a fire.

    I am a repeat customer!

  7. There is a Difference!

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 8th 2017

    These are hands down the best fire starters on the market. I am a return customer that has multiple fire starters from Fire Steel. These outperform every other style and brand fire starter that we or our Scout Troop has tried. I have bought these for family and friends and have one in every backpack and vehicle I own. Awesome product from an American company!

  8. Compact but very effective

    Posted by John S. on Jun 9th 2017

    Even though I have the larger FireSteel.com firesteel, I bought several Gobspark Rangers to give as gifts. Of course I got two for myself to put in my two vehicles' glove compartments.
    I always suggest to watch the demonstration videos. I like the fact that one does not need a half can of fuel to start a fire.
    The prices are right and I could go on and on to tout the quality of the firesteel at FireSteel.com!
    Note: Not one review on YouTube was negative.

  9. Great as a backup

    Posted by Don on Feb 25th 2017

    Ordered two of these little jewels to keep as backups in case of whatever. They make fire starting super easy. I keep one attached to my water filter and the other one is in my spare parts bag. Just in case. Nice little tool that gives peace of mind. 'Cause ya never know what will happen these days. Be prepared.

  10. I lost it before I got to use it

    Posted by shawn on Feb 12th 2017

    First time with it out in the woods and I took it off the lanyard and lost it so I really don't know how good it is being as I never got to use it one time.

  11. Comfortable in your hand, sturdy, and packs one hell of a punch!

    Posted by Nick on Feb 1st 2017

    HUGE SPARKS, compared to my more than competent UST, it absolutely destroys it. Getting flames on command, showed my friend he was blown away.

    Got the Armageddon with palm striker and magnesium rod as well. Will most likely be buying duplicates for back ups, and specialized kits.

    Fast, and efficient shipping. A top quality product.

    Thanks FireSteel.com!!

  12. Absolutely the best firesteel!!

    Posted by Mr.Ramon Carabajal on Jan 19th 2017

    A very great piece of equipment! and the shipping was fast also....made a fire that same afternoon that i got my firesteel.
    I will be ordering some more for all my kits and b.o.b.s as well.....thanks ron

  13. Love This Little Sparky

    Posted by Todd Elliott on Jan 4th 2017

    I put one of these Gobspark Rangers in all of my kits. Small and sure fire.

  14. Effective little brother perfect for pack.

    Posted by Ralph on Dec 24th 2016

    While I love the larger models (The Armageddon is my favorite go to starter around the house) this size is great for my bug out and hunting pack. Having tested about 9 different fire steel products side-by-side, I can say confidently that these produce the most and longest lasting sparks of any other common available model or any others that I have ever used.

    These make great gifts too. Everyone appreciates them.

  15. Perfect.

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 20th 2016

    The Ranger is the perfect size to carry in your pocket or attach to your knife. It's quality made and comes with a striker. I ordered the orange so if I drop it I could spot it. I got this as a edc and plan on attaching this to my small camp knife with ranger bands. I liked it so much I'm going to have to order a couple more to give to family and have a few backups. Thanks again Ron!

  16. Impressive sparks

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 28th 2016

    Have used a few other brands-while they work- they don't produce the sparks like a gob-spark. Reminds me of the sparks given off by an electric welder


  17. Always great product

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 25th 2016

    Bought all sizes, will continue to buy, give them away to Help others learn about fire making, keep up the great

  18. Perfect for Scouts and portable fire kits

    Posted by TheWildManofSTL on Sep 7th 2016

    This kit is great. It has a portable rod, nice little bright handle and a stellar striker all tied with a perfect sized loop of paracord. The price is right, it throws lots of sparks (as all firesteel.com products do) and the paracord means it is harder to loose the striker. This fits great in a tin and leaves plenty of room for tinder.

    Teaching kids on these is great due to the confidence boost of seeing great sparks come off it (which makes aiming and form a little less important) and hit the tinder. I have a number of friends that put in requests after seeing my GobSpark Armageddon in action and needed something for their kids (hope the kids actually get them, but I will probably need to order more).

    All in all, order extra so you get to keep a few.

  19. Best Firesteel any where Any Time...

    Posted by Michael Williams on Jun 24th 2016

    I have been a customer of firesteel.com since 2015 and have bought the 1/2" by 5" Bunker & the 3/8" by 6" Armageddon. the Gobspark Ranger w/striker which I also bought the magnesium rod that I placed on my neck knife. And 2 Gobspark Armageddon w/striker handle that I gave as gifts. Which are all awesome....I do not buy firesteels from anywhere else. These firesteels are all top notch. I am a customer for life and I tell all my friends to buy all their Firestreels here. Strike any of these firesteels and enjoy the fire works of sparks.

  20. Perfect

    Posted by Willyp00 on May 26th 2016

    The best small ferro rod there is. Striker is among the best. Perfect for small fire kits.
