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.

    Gobspark ranger

    Posted by Jeremy Madsen on Mar 7th 2020

    I buy these fire steels for the fire kits I make for friends and family. These fire steels throw mean sparks and have never failed me when needed. I trust these fire steels enough to place them in my children’s kits. These won’t fail you when it matters most. I am an experienced outdoorsman and I highly recommend them!

    Very solid firesteel, magnesium is nice and soft, catches the spark really easily.

    Have 12

    For the size and the packability, these are the best. Comes with a killer striker also that you can use to shave wood. Normally use big rods, and this is just a backup. It works, it works. 'Nuff said.

    So far so good!

    I have enjoyed this kit as my first firesteel kit (also got a magnesium rod too). Dont forget to scrape off the coating, but once thats done they spark up all nice and easy.

    Just what I was looking for

    Posted by Nick on Mar 21st 2019

    Very packable and useful size. Much easier than a larger rod and spine of a knife to use when lighting a Bushbuddy twig stove. Inexpensive enough they make a great gift as well so I picked up a couple extra. Glad I did.

    Giant Sparks

    Posted by Scav on Jan 31st 2019

    The GobSpark sold me. So when I saw these were in the store, I bought two without thinking twice. And just like their big brother, they throw a massive spark. I demonstrated just how well these worked along with FireSteel's magnesium rods. I shaved down some of the mag rod into a lent and jute tender bundle, went out into a 5 degree high wind West Virginia winter. Without fail, the GobSpark Ranger hit the target and instantly burst into flame on the second strike. I've always been a fan of FireSteel, but I am replacing most of my ferro rods with the GobSpark.

    FireSteel is the real deal

    Posted by Charles Hinchey on Dec 17th 2018

    Very good value. The Gobspark throws a generous spark that is comparable or surpasses the Light My Fire Scout for about half the cost. I purchased mine with the magnesium rod. The rod is soft and easy to scrape with the included scraper. Much better than the bars available at most sporting goods retailers. I am a Scout leader and require that all our fires are started with flint and steel. These will be part of our permanent kit from now on. Very satisfied with the product and the company.
