Hello Everybody, today I take you back to the Marvel Universe and the world of the Wolverine. Long time followers of my site may recall I created some designs based on Super Hero themes such as Panther’s Claw, The Flash, The Hulk, Aquaman and of course Logan/Wolverine. (These hilts were so good they inspired a custom saber manufacturer…probably – see HERE). While I liked those hilts I felt I could do better. However I never got round to improving on my designs as there were so many new unique For Tyeth and Star Wars hilts to build. But the other week I was chatting to a few friends of mine on Nothin Nerdy’s Discord server chat room. My friends, WinstonMaul and Emxc commented on my Mauled Staff CW7 and our chat turned to superheroes and Wolverine in particular. As most chats do it was suggested “Hey For, how about a Wolverine hilt? That’d be cool!” I replied I had done the ones I mention above but I could “redesign” a completely new version. So that is what I did…I decided to reforge the Adamantium and sculpt a new saber…this is Wolves’ Claw….
I didn’t go to town quite as much as I normally do and kept the design fairly clean and streamlined. I based the colours on Wolverine’s classic blue/black and yellow costume from the early Marvel comics and gave the hilt three claws just like Logan has.
The handgrip has a nice concave curvature to it which provides a very comfortable grip – and the flared ends prevents the saber slipping from your grasp. The pommel has an X-Men logo as the speaker vent cover. I also made a version in a reverse colour scheme…
I have an X-Men Academy version ready for next week. I have to do as much designing and work as I can while my laptop keeps working (I have to say it is less often it completely locks up but I still have to be wary). But there is some good news…
I have “re-discovered” an old website I used to watch cartoons on. It shut down it’s original site but I recently found the new one and it has ALL of the Star Wars Clone Wars seasons on it….including the latest one, season 7! So I am binge watching Clone Wars and have a new CW inspired hilt for a later post.
This brings me to the end of this post but I’d like to thank WinstonMaul and Emxc for challenging me to design this. I’d also like to thank all of you my viewers, followers and friends for all your support in these strange difficult times. It means a lot that you take time out to check my site. I sincerely hope you and your folks all stay safe and well and please be sure to call back and see future posts. Till next time….
