The Model 15 Stielhandgranate is the first stick grenade used by German troops. It was the predecessor for the Model 16, Model 17 and the infamous Model 24 Stielhandgranate that used by the Wehrmacht in WWII. The grenade features a long stick with a string coming out from the bottom that is attached with a adhesive strip at the end of the stick. This early model existed in various versions in regards to the pot and the stick. There are pots with beading up and down, curl down, and the lid is held by either clips or an attached lid and bottom. The sticks were initially versions without the known screw cap, but this often led to accidental ignition and to accidents, and sticks with an impact detonator and spoon safety were later issued.
