Or actually, re-installing a shield on a congress. 🙂
A friend on EDCC forums posted a knife of a distinct style, that I hadn’t remembered him having. Upon inquiry he informed me that he has actually had it for aboug 6 years. It got shelved at somepoing after it lost its shield.
Some time later he found the shield (in the dryer) and put it in a safe place. Then forgot where. A time passed and it was found, then the knife found. The morning he posted about it, he had finally gotten the shield super glued back in.
The whole thing reminded me that Somewhere I have a Colt congress, that lost its shield. And I remember where I put the shield when I found it, about 5 or 6 years ago!
Had to scrape some bone and glue off the back of the thing;
