Introduction: Knex Grenadeish Thinger Mabob

About: I like k'nex stuff, legos, programming, airsoft guns, computers, knives, camping, guitar, piano, swimming, video games(DUH), cats, food, real guns, fps, music (classical to metal), fire and making things aws...

I really liked myhailo's grenade design but it was much too delicate. I decided to make a new design and then I added a pin. It became stronger and easier to put back together. The only drawback of this design is the fact that it doesn't spread as far when it hits the ground. Be safe, responsible, and have fun building!

Step 1: What You'll Need

These are the parts you will need.

Step 2: The Knex Grenadeish Thinger Mabob's Shell

Follow das pictures.

Step 3: Make the Pin

Follow dar pictures! ARRRR!

Step 4: Loading and Useage

Attach the pin as shown in picture 1.

Load green rods or bb's into the shell as shown in picture 2-3.

Attach the last red rod as shown in picture 4.

Pull the pin and throw.

Have fun and watch the video!

    this is a good thingy mabob


    this thing can save your life in a knex war because if someone is coming at you with a sword you can just grip the pin in one hand and have the actual grenade on the back of your hand and use it as a parry

    I have a question, why do you guys think it is so bad? I thought that it was good, easy and original. Isn't that worth posting? And it is not a grenade, I never said it was. That shouldn't be a reason to complain.

    well, the idea is good, but apart from the removable pin, its just like tossing green rods, ecept they are in a hard barrel with a small exit.

    People here on instructables look at things in such the wrong way....

    Love the name, at least it doesn't sound as corny as the others such as the c382 grenade or the stienhecker grenade, wait stienheckler sounds cool...

    not a grenade, and whats with all the tags and keywords

    Minty just wants more hits...

    I know it is not a grenade, that is why it is a, "Grenadeish Thinger Mabob" not a grenade.

    this is no better than taking your knex gun and throwing it at someone when you run out of ammo

    well...i think i can speak for everyone by saying we've all had that experience either way...i'd much rather throw my killerk pistol like a shuriken then to throw this and maybe some green connectors lol

    Sorry, but not a grenade at all. More like some open thing that you throw, considering the video...
