The GobSpark™ Ranger FireSteel by 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 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.

    Perfect little companion

    Posted by Stephen Lewis on Nov 14th 2021

    Being a Army veteran, trained in, and taught winter survival training, I always drive home the importance of always keeping on your person some form of ignition source. These Ranger firesteel’s are the perfect companion to carry at all times to give a person some insurance on their survival in a crisis. I highly recommend buying several of these and passing them out as gifts. Fire is so essential to our survivability.

    There are 2 of these with me EVERY day. Top shelf quality ferro rods that are there when you need them. Nice shower of sparks/compact size. You forget you're even carrying them...Until you need them.

    Bought my first set in 2016. They are great. I have bought more to make other kits. Still carry one all times with me and use it.
