FireSteel Ranger

(76 reviews) Write a Review
  • 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"
$3.16 - $4.70


The FireSteel Ranger Series by are 1/4 inch thick. Ranger FireSteels fit well in mini survival kits and the popular Altoid Tin survival kits that many people enjoy making.

The Ranger 3.0 FireSteel is also a good choice for those who are giving classes on firemaking skills and seek 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 rod 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.


  • Size: 1/4 inch diameter by 3 inches long (6.35 x 76mm)
  • Weight: .53 ounce (15 grams)
  • Robust 5500 F (3000 C) sparks that will start a fire in the toughest conditions
  • Composition: ferrocerium rod


  • Genuine FireSteel.
  • Enough FireSteel to make hundreds of fires.
  • Excellent sparks that you expect from a FireSteel
  • Easy to use and very safe (Common sense required when using any firemaking gear).
  • Premium firesteel formula that takes your firesteel firemaking to a whole new level
  • 5500 F (3000 C) sparks that will start a fire in the toughest conditions

    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.

    Exact size I wanted

    I was wanting to make a small fire kit to put in the fold of my wallet. This FireSteel that's 1/4" thick, 2-1/2" long (same length as a dollar bill is wide) is the perfect size! I then wrapped it with cotton, then painter's tape on the outside. Perfect to start a fire (sparked with a pocket knife) in an emergency!

    FireSteel's ferrocerium rods are the absolute best, whether shaving of magnesium to get things going in damp weather, or striking a spark. I've tried a lot and these are now all I use.

    Great tool. I give them out to my Hunter Ed students. They get to practice and are thrilled to get their own.

    So I have to admit, I found their website completely by accident when I was researching where to buy a fire steal from, I guess there’s no coincidence there. So what I was looking to do is build a kit for my fall hikes and winter hikes that would give me more flexibility with my fire starting methods. I had tried a bunch of them before from online retailers mostly, cheap stuff off of Amazon, and I’m not afraid to admit it. The quality of these fires steels however, gives me much more peace of mind in knowing that I’m adding a higher quality piece to my kit. You really won’t be disappointed in trying any of their products and in a pinch it’s great knowing you have the best version of whatever you need on hand.
