  • 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"
$6.26 - $12.38


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.

    ranger up!

    Posted by moose on Aug 30th 2019

    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.

    the pup ferro rods work great . I have been practicing with my firesteel mag bar using wax paper making fine shavings from the mag bar to start the fire .

    Excellent ferro rod

    Posted by Dr. David R. Smythe on Mar 5th 2018

    I bought two of these to test them before committing to more at a larger size and price. I had bought some competitor's models at a lower price, which were advertised as ferro rods, but, while they initially sparked well, they soon wore down to an inner ribbed metal of some sort which does not spark at all. These inferior models (5/16 X 3) would probably start about 15-20 fires per rod, depending on the skill of the user, but quickly become useless. FireSteel rods, in a smaller size (1/4 X 3) have not done this. I purposely scraped one side repeatedly to see if it would wear down to this point and though I scraped it enough to start probably 25 fires or more, it has not failed to throw heavy-duty sparks. I have no doubt that I could start well over a few hundred fires with this one small rod. I am planning my next purchase of these, but, as the ones I have are working very well, it may not be for a while. I will, however, purchase these again.

    Small but Mighty

    Posted by Jawfish on Jan 7th 2018

    Great size - fits in an altoid tin even. But small does not mean it is not mighty. The rod throws a nice hot spark very easily. Love this little guy.
