Total weight: 800gram , Filling: 200gram.


The protective cap is missing on the photos, the stick is a modern replacement. The grenade seems to be a variant on this "Lishin" grenade.





As seen on the photo right, there appears to be a similar type with a less-segmented body.
This could be an earlier (first?) type or maybe a local improvisation.
The transport-cap is in place.
