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 EDC !

    Posted by Jean-Francois Daigle on Dec 8th 2018

    I have a GobSpark Ranger from attached to my keychain for at least 2 years now. Like a good knife, I feel naked when I don't have it on me. It's absolutely the best firesteel I have used in my life, and I tried the 2nd best in the world (sorry Sweden, you finished second this time). My friend lights his woodstove every single day during winter using no paper at all!!! It's like a personal goal for him; he just makes shaving of wood from a dried stick and use an Armageddon rod (which produce astonishing amount of sparks). He claims 3 complete winter seasons without any paper to help start his daily fire. Ranger size is perfect for EDC but I rather have a longer one in my backpack for outdoor days. In emergency situation, you want to have larger one for better hold on your rod, with gloves or under stress, wounded, etc. Ron and all the team are simply awesome human being, sharing great values of respect for nature. The shipping bill and instructions are used for wrapping stuff for the shipping and this is a great idea! Start your first fire with the instruction sheet... Thanks for taking care of our Earth, friends! All people at seems very kind and generous, putting customer satisfaction at first and never lower the quality of the product. Perfect gift for Christmas! Enjoy the great outdoor... Jean

    Ranger Kit

    Posted by Mike C on Dec 5th 2018

    Having used products before- these kits are Christmas gifts for my friends. I'm sure that they will enjoy and use them. There are no better firesteels in existence, in my opinion.

    Made I the USA

    Posted by Charles on Sep 19th 2018

    I’ve bought at least 15 differing combinations of FireSteel fire starters for BOBs, small personal survival kits and my go-bag I carry to the deer lease. I think the quality sets FireSteel apart from all others. I would not hesitate buying any of’s products. Shipping is fast, too. The ferrocerium rods do throw good sparks, but I have nothing to compare them to because I’ve always used this brand. The magnesium rods are of good quality, also. Purchase with confidence.

    New fire starter, with magnesium rod

    Posted by Ken Mitchell on Sep 15th 2018

    This is my first purchase with and I am very pleased with the quality of the product, quickness of delivery, and overall positive feeling from the company. I must admit that my purchase was due to watching Joe Robinet’s YouTube channel. I have been lighting fires here at my farm since the day the package arrived. You have a great company and I have been telling my friends about

    Great product

    Posted by Ronald Bingham on Sep 12th 2018

    Currently I have purchased 12 of these fire starters for my sons, sons in law and my older grandsons for their 10 essential kits. I will be purchasing more when my younger grandsons are old enough. We have started campfires multiple times and they always work no matter the weather conditions. We were caught in a snow storm at over 10000 feet in the Uintah wilderness thank goodness for its ability to start a fire even though the wood was damp.

    Showers hot sparks as described. 4 out of 5 stars cause I should have gotten the longer one. Performed excellent. I will purchase again.

    Absolutely Perfect for my Students

    Posted by Brady Patterson on Aug 20th 2018

    These are part of the stock kit I give to each of my students and they use them very hard during their training and they keep on sparking. I highly recommend any of the firesteels in the Gobspark line.

    Small, efficient, and long lasting. Throws sparks like a champ. I have taken the GobSpark Ranger on 2 weekend trips and 1 week long trip, and it has preformed exactly how I wanted it to. Would absolutely recommend.
