Kinmen was the scene of armed conflicts, as evidenced by the left-over shells of millions of grenades. These have been collected, manufactured into knives and other useful items, and sold under the name Artillerools. In this way, the battlefield was to be transformed into a place of peace. The packaging of the utensils features the form of an artillery shell in memory of the original purpose of the metal used. It is decorated with an illustration depicting the Wind Lion God, who is said to protect against misfortune. A booklet with illustrations complements the design.
