    I think it's the base of a Knickzünder 29 tilting rod fuze, probably the practice version.

    Are there any markings present?

    As per the distinctive olive color it also could be post war.

    Very interesting!

    Has anybody ever seen a manual on it?

    Hello Stecol
    Thanks for your pics . What's your opinion about the upper part of the fuse ? The long stalk protect a specific device ?

    I don't know what to say Madoc.

    The only thing I'm fairly certain, is that at the end of the fuze was plugged in a Sprengkapsel No. 8.

    The tube seems to be made of thin brass sheet, apart the reinforcement band that goes onto the spring toothed crown of the lighter's body.
    Was it simply a cover for the (unknown) sensor during transport and installation, or was it part of the sensor itself and contained some kind of device ?

    Perhaps a vial containing a chemical agent, which was inserted shortly before arming the fuze ?
    Could this be the solution, given the type of connection between the body and the tube, a simple engagement system that allows to easily remove the tube without
    affecting a fragile device inside?

    But what should the reagent have done ? Did directly produce a strong exothermic reaction that ignites the Sprengkapsel (e.g. Topfminezünder SF 1) or dissolve instantly
    the lock of a spring loaded firing pin that started the firing chain ?

    What's the use of positive safety lock in the side ?
    To block the firing pin or to prevent the flow of reagent contained in the vial ?

    As you can see there are many questions, but for now no reliable answer.
    Hope some other forum user can give us some information.
