Why is there not many good knex "explosives" on this site or anywhere. People post your bombs and grenades! Answered

I want ALL knex weapons makers to post pictures of bombs and grenades that actually explode here. I am tired of so called grenades that just shatter

Who expects people to put real explosives, in knex grenades? Seriously, "normal" rubber bands do not have the power to kill. My HE grenade is pretty small but not many fragments fly out. It is still somewhat dangerous, I got hit in the eye by one of the fragments.

i have tried your grenade but was very sad with the results. didnt explode when i threw it but then did "explode" when i walked down the hall and picked it up, and when i say "explode" i mean fall apart in a blast radius of about 3/4 inch. i do like the pin function though.

You need to make the first rubber band you place tighter for the best results.

probably people don't make many because they can be dificult to controll (ive had a couple explode on me) or for mine like explosives, the trigger (tripwire, remote controll, time) I've seen some that act like that party poppers where you pull the string and many greens are fired out of muti barrels, It would be nice to see more someday.

How about filling a knex prism with firecrackers? Leave one fuse sticking out and bingo! You now have a knex bomb! I made a design of one before but not using firecrackers. I recommend airbursting these to maximize blast radius. With some crackers, not only fragments from the knex will go flying but will hot fiery bits of burnt paper and powder go everywhere. I am not held responsible for any injuries caused by this.

It's not as bad as others. I've seen some that really just shatter and slide across the floor.

How about my grenades? Check them out I mean the earliest one. Not efficient on rubber bands considering the size but it won't go kafriggn' boom in your pocket. The other one is pretty unstable but does the job!
