German WWII BK2H glass grenade


I found this item recently for sale, very interesting:

Seems like their price has been lower in the past, but their present scarcity with the original cap, and the demand must be driving that price up.


What happened if it fell in the sand so nothing broke? It is difficult for me to believe that far-seeing and punctual Germans can approve of such a precarious design. But what do I know about grenades!!!


What’s a grenade?


Vlad, these were to be used against tanks and armored vehicles. If they were not hit directly it did not matter much if it went off or not.
