Model 24 Stielhandgranate

The Model 24 Stielhandgranate ("stalk hand grenade") was the principle hand grenade used by the German military from 1924 to the end of World War 2. Essentially a blast-effect concussion grenade, the weapon consisted of an explosive head with a 5-second chemical fuse armed using a pull-cord friction igniter.

The Model 24 was a further simplification of the series of grenades that began in World War 1 with the Model 15 Stielhandgranate (which initially featured a loose pull cord, with a threaded cap screwed into the base of the shaft added to retain the cord after several unfortunate accidents) and progressed through the Model 16 Stielhandgranate and Model 17 Stielhandgranate. The primary change in the Model 24 was the elimination of the belt clip on the grenade's head.

The long handle allowed the Model 24 to be thrown significantly further than a standard grenade, at a cost of increased size and weight per grenade. Complaints about the relatively small blast radius led to the development of the Splitterring fragmentation sleeve in 1942.

The long handle and club-like head earned the weapon the nickname of "potato masher" among Allied troops. The structure of the grenade allowed for some unorthodox uses such as suspending grenades from barbed wire by their cords so that any disturbance would arm them, and the creation of the "Geballte Ladung" ("bundled charge") where six additional grenade heads were secured around the head of a central grenade with wire to create a powerful improvised demolition charge.

A smoke version (Nebelhandgranate 39) marked with a white band (and later a grooved handle so it would not be mistaken for an HE grenade in the dark) was designed in 1939, and models for the Russian front (where the original model often failed to detonate in cold weather) feature a "K" ("Kalt," "Cold") marking. Attempts were made to replace the Model 24 with simpler grenades, with these including the Model 39 Eihandgranate and Model 43 Stielhandgranate, but the Model 24 remained in production until the end of the war.
