A Chinese man was recently shocked to learn the explosive truth about a kitchen utensil he’s been using to crack nuts for the past 25 years.

It turns out that the nutcracker isn’t a nutcracker at all. It’s actually a hand grenade. The man admits he never knew exactly what the object is, but it came in handy for cracking walnuts, so that’s what he used it for. But after reading a leaflet about explosives, he began to wonder about the object. That’s when he decided to hand it over to police to have it checked out — and they confirmed that it is a grenade from the 1960s.

Police are determining whether the grenade is still live.
