If you have been following my blog, you may remember this post a while back about an similar set of Wolverine Claws. I also featured this previous set in my Ultimate Wolverine Claw Guide. Well, this set is pretty much the same as the other one, except that someone had the excellent idea of powder coating the blades and the handle black, and wrapping the handle in black leather.

The final effect is, for lack of a better word, schweet. Simply beautiful. At least in my opinion. This particular blade design still posses the same structural/mechanical shortcomings that I talked about in the other post, however at least these look much, much more sinister. Which, in my book, is better. Which earns the dark pair of wolverine claws extra wickedness points over the relatively wussy shiny pair…

    ahhh nothing like a nice set of claws that would implant themselves between your knuckles if you ever used them 🙂

    LOL you can say that again… It’s funny, the movie prop claws had the same issues. Of course it was a MOVIE PROP, so the design wasn’t ever intended for actual use. But I guess so long as it looks similar people will be happy…

    Maybe I just expect too much…

    There is something to be said for having lower expectations, if something falls short of where it should you aren’t too terribly surprised or disappointed.

    why hasn’t anybody used a set of replica gauntlets and then tac-welded the pantera or other blades onto them? seems that’d be pretty sturdy…
