The FireSteel Palm Scraper™ by FireSteel.com takes fire making gear to whole new level.
Palm Scraper in Action
To use the Palm Scraper™, grasp the handle in the palm of your hand. This means that you can easily use it even when your fingers are too cold to function properly or you are wearing gloves.
What's more, the Palm Scraper handle is hollow. The GobSpark Armageddon FireSteel Rod securely snaps into the Palm Scraper handle so that your firesteel is protected.
The metal firesteel scraper that is attached to the Palm Scraper handle is made from the exact same ulta-hardened steel as as the famous FireSteel.com Super Scrapers, so you know you'll get massive showers of sparks.
Good news for the thousands of people already using GobSpark Armageddon FireSteels => the Palm Scraper will fit yours too!
The innovative GobSpark Palm Scraper is designed to be held tightly in the palm of your hand - especially great when wearing gloves or your hands are very cold
Even if you do not own a GobSpark Armageddon FireSteel, the Palm Scraper is a great addition to your firemaking gear because it will work on any other firesteel rods.
Think nothing is made in America anymore? Think again. The FireSteel.com Palm Scraper is designed and manufactured right here in the United States.
Whenever possible FireSteel.com makes its products in the USA. Stop sending your money to China or Sweden - keep American workers employed and you get to keep your job and your benefits too!

I reviewed the GobSpark on that page and this striker was part of my purchase. While this striker can be used with any fire steel I don't see why you would order one without also ordering the GobSpark because they are made for each other.
It has the same day glow orange colour, fills the hand which is great when you have cold fingers, and can be used with both gloves and mitts.
When ordered it together came with 2' of good paracord but I added 5' of para cord wrapped around itself to give me more cord that works the same as the 2'.

The Palm Scraper is a MUST. Makes it a whole lot easier.

This is without doubt one of the better ferro rods available. It does live up to the name Gobspark. Mine lives in my pocket so I'll easily have fire where ever I go. My hands are arthritic and the large handle on the Gobspark is easier to grip when your hands are hurting so badly that your grip is weakened. I also bought the palm scraper with my Gobspark. They work very well together. I wish that I had had one of these when I was in the SeaBees.

While the small scraper does a great job, the Palm scraper is designed to be more comfortable to use under harsh conditions. Like it's little brother, it throws a shower of large, white-hot sparks, and you can grip it better.
Good job, guys!

I wish everything I bought lived up to it's claims like the palm Scraper does. I just love this scraper it fits in the hand so naturally and throws a shower of sparks every time I use it. This thing is a winner. Keep up the good work guys. Jack from Rochester, NY

Gloves in winter are a must in Alaska and one needs a scraper that can be held, even if hands are cold or numb. Children, scouts, all love this scraper. Why? Because it's easy and it works. I've used and seen this scraper
used in winter and summer, it never fails. I first ordered it on the Armageddon firesteel, but have ordered more. It's light and it's simple to get loads of sparks, anytime.

While the super scraper works the palm scraper RULES! I will be getting one for all my ARMAGEDONS. Trust me it is the best!

The palm scrapers seem to have a sharper edge for striking. I have spent some time now experimenting with various scrapers on both my Gobspark Armagedon and some cheap mischmetal rods and the palm scraper consistently outperforms every other type of scraper. Add to that very fast shipping and friendly customer service and you just can't beat this product.

Very nice product. Works like the smaller brother, however if your hands cannot or willnot grip the smaller version -- this scraper fits in the palm of your hand and with not much grip at all, sparks then fire. Should always have one of these on hand (no pun intended).

Well designed scraper. Clips securely to the GobSpark, yet pops off and works great. I have GobSpark, Palm Scraper, Fatwood slab and Magnesium rod all on the same lanyard for easy access. I just hold the slab and rod with my pinky as I'm gripping the GobSpark with thumb and first two fingers, plenty of room to operate the scraper - quite a combo!!

I like and used successfully the Super Scraper,but the Palm Scraper works much better for me,and it will for you too.I have Diabetic Neuropathy (loss of nerve response and muscle control)in my extremities and the Palm Scraper is the best for great sparks and control with my limited hand control...Which you will experience in cold or injured conditions.The Palm Scraper also protects the Armageddon Firesteel so well and LOOKS SO GOOD that some people want a "keychain" like mine...not knowing what a tool it really is.

I went out in windy and raining conditions - a couple strikes started the fire. Dip a cotton ball in petroleum jelly - with just couple strikes it's burning.
Now i carry [a FireSteel.com FireSteel] everywhere and also in my car for emergencies.

Since I have several FireSteel.com firestarters,they looked undressed w/o the FireSteel Scrapers. I like fact that fit my large hands. (God's gift to me) I am impressed with FiresteelSteel.com Palm Scraper actually covers the FireSteel.com and the ease to get to the Palm Scraper.
One strike to a greased cotton ball, you have the start of a flame.
The owner's affability and product price can't be compared. Thank you for a great product.

Easy to hold and does a wonderful job.

It fits perfectly in your palm for a good grip. I would rather use this instead of using a knife.

I've got half a dozen GobSpark Armageddon firesteels, and as much as I've loved them this striker re-invents them! It's an incredible striker. Head and shoulders above anything else I've used. Often I use a Knives of Alaska in D2 because of how well they strike but now I'll let them just be knives! ;-)

I was leaving on an ice climbing expedition and realized I did not have matches in my gear. My brother gave me this firesteel and palm scraper - works amazingly well!

The new palm-size scrapers I ordered along with the fatwood came in today just before my son and I leaving for an overnight with his Boyscout troop.
Thank you for the Gob-Spark ranger, I will give it to my son since it is just his size; however, he will have to earn his fire'em chip tonight first.
