The Model 17 Eihandgranate (or Eierhandgranate) is a German "Egg" hand grenade introduced early in 1917 (during WWI) as a lightweight, more portable, longer-range alternative to the heavier Model 13 Kugelhandgranate and stick grenades. It features a smooth outer casing which houses the explosive filling and delay fuse with a pull wire loop protruding from its top. The neue Art variant has a fragmenting ring across its diameter to improve fragmentation during detonation.
