Electrified Wolverine Claws

“The Hacksmith” is an inventor known for his superhero creations, with the latest being a pair of electrified Wolverine claws, just in time for the release of Logan. Measuring in at 13-inches long, they’re constructed from high carbon steel, and then nickel plated for a mirror finish. They took approximately 20 hours to manufacture, with the outline being waterjet cut, while the blade details were machined on a CNC. Next, a car battery was connected to the claws, positive on one, and negative on the other. When connecting them together, the battery is short-circuited, resulting in sparks that can draw anywhere from 200-300A – they are actually tiny bits of superheated metal coming from the claws.
