Shaving Stick Grenade

Shaving Stick GrenadeThis is a thin-cased offensive type grenade with a B. Z. E. friction igniter screwed into the top. The cylindrical body is made of aluminum and painted yellow. There are two models of this grenade, one 3 5/8 inches long and the other 4 inches long. This grenade may also be used as a booby trap by the insertion of a D. Z. 35 Pressure Igniter. To operate the grenade, the head of the igniter is unscrewed and pulled, drawing the wire through the friction composition and igniting the delay pellet. The grenade is then thrown and after a 4-5 second delay, the delay element initiates the detonator.
