90 year old Grandma Qin in China has been using a hand grenade as her homemade hammer for 20 years.  She found “the metal lump”  in the farming fields 20 years ago and thought that it was a make shift hammer so she took it home and used it for anything a hammer would be used for.

She crushed pepper with it, cracked nuts and even hammered nails in the wall!

The grenade has a wooden handle with a metal top filled with the catastrophic bomb inside it.

It’s no bigger than hammer size so we can see how she had no idea that it was a grenade.

And she used it a lot, as police reported that the grenade’s wooden handle had become smooth from years of use, while the metallic head was full of dents.
