The FireSteel Palm Scraper™ by FireSteel.com takes fire making gear to a whole new level.
Palm Scraper in Action
To use the Palm Scraper™, grasp the handle in the palm of your hand. This means that you can easily use it even when your fingers are too cold to function properly or you are wearing gloves.
What's more, the Palm Scraper handle is hollow. The matching GobSpark Armageddon FireSteel Rod (sold separately) securely snaps into the Palm Scraper handle so that your FireSteel is protected.
The metal scraper (striker) blade that is attached to the Palm Scraper is made from the exact same ulta-hardened steel as as the famous FireSteel.com Super Scrapers, so you know you'll get massive showers of sparks.
The innovative GobSpark Palm Scraper is designed to be held tightly in the palm of your hand - especially great when wearing gloves or your hands are very cold
Even if you do not own a GobSpark Armageddon FireSteel, the Palm Scraper is a great addition to your firemaking gear because it will work on any other FireSteel rods.
This is especially welcome news for customers with limited grasp strength whether due to the cold, gloved hands or conditions such as arthritis. It is much easier and you get a better purchase when you grasp the handle of a Palm Scraper with your whole hand than when you pinch the handle of a Super Scraper with just a few fingers.

While the super scraper works the palm scraper RULES! I will be getting one for all my ARMAGEDONS. Trust me it is the best!
The palm scrapers seem to have a sharper edge for striking. I have spent some time now experimenting with various scrapers on both my Gobspark Armagedon and some cheap mischmetal rods and the palm scraper consistently outperforms every other type of scraper. Add to that very fast shipping and friendly customer service and you just can't beat this product.
Very nice product. Works like the smaller brother, however if your hands cannot or willnot grip the smaller version -- this scraper fits in the palm of your hand and with not much grip at all, sparks then fire. Should always have one of these on hand (no pun intended).
Well designed scraper. Clips securely to the GobSpark, yet pops off and works great. I have GobSpark, Palm Scraper, Fatwood slab and Magnesium rod all on the same lanyard for easy access. I just hold the slab and rod with my pinky as I'm gripping the GobSpark with thumb and first two fingers, plenty of room to operate the scraper - quite a combo!!
I like and used successfully the Super Scraper,but the Palm Scraper works much better for me,and it will for you too.I have Diabetic Neuropathy (loss of nerve response and muscle control)in my extremities and the Palm Scraper is the best for great sparks and control with my limited hand control...Which you will experience in cold or injured conditions.The Palm Scraper also protects the Armageddon Firesteel so well and LOOKS SO GOOD that some people want a "keychain" like mine...not knowing what a tool it really is.
I went out in windy and raining conditions - a couple strikes started the fire. Dip a cotton ball in petroleum jelly - with just couple strikes it's burning. Now i carry [a FireSteel.com FireSteel] everywhere and also in my car for emergencies.
Since I have several FireSteel.com firestarters,they looked undressed w/o the FireSteel Scrapers. I like fact that fit my large hands. (God's gift to me) I am impressed with FiresteelSteel.com Palm Scraper actually covers the FireSteel.com and the ease to get to the Palm Scraper. One strike to a greased cotton ball, you have the start of a flame. The owner's affability and product price can't be compared. Thank you for a great product.
Easy to hold and does a wonderful job.
It fits perfectly in your palm for a good grip. I would rather use this instead of using a knife.
