Could somebody make a WW2 german hand grenade, a.k.a. the "potatoe masher" for me?

This looks pretty easy to make in real life - just get a piece of wood, whittle it a bit with a knife, & get an empty plastic pot like a vitamin pill pot, paint that brown or green or whatever, attach it to the piece of wood & there you have it.

Then you can chuck it wherever you want & then apply an explosion in Alam, & it'll look great...
