Engineering The Wolverine – Building Real Adamantium Claws – Man At Arms

You know when you’re trying to make yourself some cheese and crackers for a nice afternoon snack, but it’s taking way too long to cut each slice of cheese, one-at-a time? You’re like, “Jeez, if only I had some Adamantium claws like Wolverine, I’d be slicing this tasty colby-jack like 3 times faster!”

Or, how about when you have that annoying itch right in the middle of your back, and you just can’t seem to reach it, no matter what? You yell, “I’d do anything to have three 12” stainless steel razor claws on my arm to reach this pesky mosquito bite!”
