This is a replica of a M-24 grenade Stielhandgranate, Germany that was used in World War I and II. The pomegranate handle ustilised on this replica was introduced in 1915 and the design was developed in the First World War, the detonator worked by friction. Although this method was rare in other countries, it was widely uself in German grenades. The shell itself was composed of a hollow handle with a detonator and an explosive head at one end. Inside the hollow handle, a rope with a ball was attached to the detonator. To use the grenade, the cap from the base is unscrewed, allowing the ball and the rope to drop. By pulling the rope, it dragged a steel rod through the fuse, causing it to turn on and begin the pre-detonation of five seconds. The first handle grenades had uncovered rope, which came out of the handle near the bottom instead of going into this, covered by removable from the base like this model. This meant that the strings had a tendency to tangle and trigger grenades when the German soldiers took them out, causing severe and often fatal injuries.
