 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. one word; DAMN!!!

    Posted by Fred on Feb 14th 2016

    talk about sparks. I'm not the best knowing in rod fires but you know its good when that "damn" goes trough your body. Never seen so much sparks come off rods before trying this one out. 1 scratch to take off coating then 1 scratch for big sparks and that was with barely any pressure. I probably could've made massive sparks with pressure.
    Used to playing around with cheap Chinese rods and spark them in my living room to test them, you can be sure i won't do that again with firesteel rods lol.
    Freaked me out. Wasn't expecting that.
    Top notch and for the price, gonna buy much more.(i wonder what the bigger Armageddon i think there called would do.ummm....gonna have to buy one and see.)

    worth every penny and won't buy elsewhere.

  2. It sparks first time evry time.

    Posted by Bob on Aug 21st 2015

    I was amazed how easy it worked.I would recommend this product to my friends. A great survival tool to have on hand .You never know when the bottom of our economy is going to go bust .It nice to know you have this tool in your bug out bag. Respectfully R. Sherman

  3. Flint and Steel refined to perfection!!!!!

    The 44 magnum of fire starters

  4. First Class Fire Steel

    Posted by Unknown on May 5th 2015

    An excellent little fire steel, at a great price!

  5. Small Package, Big Sparks

    Posted by Todd on Apr 25th 2015

    I already have the Gob Spark, so I know the quality of the Gob Spark Ranger would be just as awesome. I was right. I bought two for my EDC Outdoor Survival Kit. One for me and the other for my son. I never want to be in the field and not be able to start a fire. The Gob Spark Ranger, insures that I can have fire 95% of the time. It's a perfect addition to my micro kit. I don't go outdoors without it.
    My next purchase will be the 6 inch version.

  6. Great for extra locations

    Posted by Bill on Apr 25th 2015

    These little rods are perfect for my kids. They're small enough for their hands and work GREAT....Allowing them to get the reward of a shower of sparks every time.
    I put one in my Get home bag, another as a backup in my BOB and another as a backup in my Scout Pack.
    I look forward to trying the Big Daddy God Spark when I have a little more play money.
    I've got rods from everyone out there but the quality of the product from Firesteel.com is the best I've seen..hands down!

  7. One of the best fire starters I've ever owned

    Posted by Dan on Apr 22nd 2015

    I owned two of these previously and just love them on camping trips and I keep them in are vehicles for emergencies. Easy to use.

  8. Great addition to my survival bag.

    Posted by Harry on Apr 15th 2015

    I was researching fire starting tools and came across a blog that mentioned getting the biggest ferro rod you could fit in your kit. I never even thought ferro rods came in sizes. It's tiny, but it has never failed to light a fire. When I read "go big". I looked around for bigger rods and found Firesteel.com. I took the plunge and ordered a Gobspark. The sparks it kicks off are impressive, and it requires far less force to use. Based off home tests, I am buying more.

  9. The Boy Scouts love these

    Posted by Mark on Mar 19th 2015

    My two scouts were really impressed with how easy it was to get sparks off these, lots of sparks. They've seen and used other fire starters at various camps and fire starting challenges and the GobSpark Ranger (perfect for their size hands!) produces a larger shower of sparks than all the others.

  10. Great sparks of fire!!

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 2nd 2015

    This is my second fire steel from this company.The shipping is faster than I was told. I would recommend them to anyone. Great products!

  11. Great fire starter

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 30th 2015

    I ordered 6 to have extras and the shipping was fast and very pleased with the product. Gobspark throws allot of spark and starts a fire quickly.

  12. Gobspark ranger firesteel is a great little fire starter

    Posted by Kenny on Jan 23rd 2015

    Gobspark ranger firesteel, works better than any store bought firesteel that I've purchased. And the striker, is just awesome hands down. Would've rated 5 stars but the handle on the fire steel is a little small, other than that it works great! I will be purchasing other products.

  13. Awesome sparks

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 15th 2014

    I bought one of these for my son's birthday for him to use camping. As a scoutmaster, who can start a fire with just two pieces of wood, he much prefers using his Gobspark. This one is for me after I saw him use it. And I bought him an upgrade.

  14. Gobs of sparks in a small size fitesteel

    Posted by Gregory on Dec 2nd 2014

    I have several other Firesteels in larger sizes but wanted some smaller ones for a new project. The Gobspark Ranger delivers gobs of sparks like the larger Firesteels, but in a smaller size. I've been quite pleased with my other Firesteels, and the Ranger is no exception, and the included strikers make them an excellent value for the price. And as always the shipping was super quick! Thank you Firesteel!

  15. Family fun

    Posted by John M on Nov 14th 2014

    I have purchased the Gobspark ranger and ammagedon in past. Recently ordered several more rangers to give to my son and his friends. We had a fire making lesson on a nice fall weekend. The boys enjoyed the bushcraft session and like having their own firesteels.

  16. Great size for EDC

    Posted by Kent on Oct 8th 2014

    I love the Gobspark Ranger! I carry it every day in my nylon leatherman pouch along with my leatherman charge. The wood saw works perfectly as a scraper.

  17. One strike fires

    Posted by michaEL on Nov 6th 2013

    I like it. I'm glad I bought three of them.

  18. Only point at things you intend to burn

    Posted by James H on Oct 14th 2013

    I had heard good things about Firesteel.com products so I decided to try them. I created large amounts of sparks using the scraper,the back of knives and quartz pieces from my driveway and the file on a winchester mini multi tool. I will be ordering more firesteels for my other knives and packs.The GobSpark Ranger firesteel is also sold at a steel(steal) of a price. Sorry bad pun alert

  19. Great Product!

    Posted by RonP on Sep 26th 2013

    I gave one scrape of the fire strater rod and a shower of sparks resulted.

  20. I Got Fired Up!

    Posted by Jim T. on Sep 5th 2013

    This one worked just as promised, great sparks. I'll be out of the burn unit in just a few weeks.
