    This is something that been in my mind for a long time. Are his "claws" really claws, or are they just blades. because to me, they look like blades.

    What exactly do you mean? They are claws because they are a natural part of his body. To simply say they are blades is to imply that they are not part of his body.

    They're like the rest of his skeleton.  They are bone claws covered in Adamantium.

    They are densely calcified retractable bone claws, which have been sharpened and covered in adamantium.

    alright. i already knew everything about the anatomy and all that. but i was just asking if they should really be considered claws. but this is starting to make more sense to me.

    In a technical sense, no. They are simply bone mutations that result in a claw-like appearance. But because of the way he uses them and how much they look like claws, we call them claws.

    So was Wolverine born with the claws, or were they done with the adamantium?

    Cool.  A buddy of mine just asked me and I thought that they were inserted when they laced his bones with adamantium.  Thanks.
