A pulse solution for a propagating crack resticking after breakage is presented for mode III crack in a two-dimensional continuum model. A compact expression of the solution is obtained in the infinite sample width limit by using a real space representation of the Wiener-Hopf solution obtained before. It is shown that the cohesive zone is not necessary around the resticking region in order that the continuum model does not have a diverging stress.
