  • All our FireSteel Ranger rods are 1/4" diameter and are available in 2", 3" or 4" lengths.  (Calipers, Magnesium bar, moss and bits of bark not included.)
  • The Ranger is an excellent size FireSteel for introducing groups to making fires.  A good choice for scouting and other organizations where you would like to provide a FireSteel for each individual to use
  • Plenty of firesteel to light many dozens of fires, and a littler easier to hold onto than the smaller Pup and Miniature firesteels
  • The Ranger Family comes in 2.5", 3" & 4" all with a 1/4" diameter.  This is the same rod used in our famous GobSpark Rangers
  • Ranger 2.5" x 1/4"
  • Ranger 3" x 1/4"
  • Ranger 4" x 1/4"
$8.30 - $16.42


The FireSteel Ranger Series by are 1/4 inch thick.

Avalable lengths: 2", 2.5", 3", and 4" Ranger 2.0 or Ranger 2.5 FireSteel fit well in mini survival kits and the popular Altoid Tin survival kits that many people enjoy making.

The Ranger 3.0 or Ranger 4.0 FireSteel are good choices for survival and firemaking skills instructors, scout groups and anyone who needs a firesteel that is inexpensive yet easy to use by those who many not have experience starting a fire with a FireSteel.

The length of the 3" and 4" rods makes it easy to hold onto, and there is plenty of firesteel to practice making fires and bring home for use hiking, camping, and practicing survival and fire making skills.

    Firesteel Size

    Posted by Dr. James Gest on Oct 15th 2023

    Size matters and I found them hard to hold and kind of short to easily generate enough sparks. Going to try and glue some together and attach a wooden dowel handle to them.

    Came as described

    This is my first fire steel, so without comparison I know that other's thoughts and opinions outweigh mine. However, my 4" Ranger is perfect for my needs, came exactly as described, and I especially appreciate the attention paid to the concept of sustainability (minimalist packaging, all paper/cardboard). Shipping took longer than predicted, but that is most definitely not the fault of I look forward to future purchases from this company.
