Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is an extremely rare example of a wooden practice training M1924, M24, or Stielhandgranate 24 ("stalk hand grenade") German Stick Grenade, often called a "potato masher". They are officially termed Übungshandgranate, which literally means Exercise Hand Grenade.

This variant is one that we have not seen before, which is made entirely from wood. The handles of the functional M24 were turned down on large lathes, and apparently they extended this design to make an entire grenade. There are no markings on the grenade, and it looks only partly finished, so this type may have never been put into full production. Definitely a very interesting example!

Training grenades are nearly impossible to find as by early 1943 production of practice grenades had stopped. This is definitely an interesting example, sure to add variety to any WWII Ordnance collection. Ready to display!
