The claws are made of resin over a metal support structure and are attached to a simple grip that allows the fingers to slide between the blades. The top edge of the claws extends past the knuckle, giving the illusion that the blades protrude from Wolverine’s skin. The claws are painted a faux-silver colour, as the character has an Adamantium skeleton. Although the claws are not sharp, they have been cast with grooves in the blade to simulate sharpened blades.

The claws and CG reference claws are presented in their original on-set case (labeled “Claus”, short for “Santa Claus”, as a clever means of disguising the contents) used to store and transport the claws. The foam within the carrying case has been cut to shape, allowing the claws to fit snugly inside. The claws show minor wear due to production use and remain in very good condition. Dimensions (each): 26 cm x 11 cm x 5 cm (10 ¼” x 4 ½” x 2”) £4,000-6,000.
