Former Mythbuster Adam Savage Upgrades a Captain America Shield

Former Mythbusters host gave a lowdown on how to upgrade the shield without damaging the original build.

Adam Savage's Tested channel is a gold mine for nerds out there who love craftsmanship. If you're keen on Captain America, this video of him updating Captain America's Shield will do the trick for you.

We all know the classic red, white and blue weapon that adorns the hands of Marvel fans around the world. Much to many's jealousy, Adam Savage actually owns a near-identical duplicate of Captain America's stealth shield. This shield, which was featured in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, was made for him by Shield Works. Adam explains that he has seen the original shield in person, and this replica is as close as you can get to the real thing according to him, since the bullet marks and the paint job is perfectly executed.

While the shield is perfectly crafted, it was missing some stuff. In this video, he takes the shield down t the workshop and adds the missing stuff, more specifically, the back rim on the shield, himself. If you're a fan of watching DIY videos, you'll enjoy watching Adam Savage work ferociously.
