I understand all that.I wasn't talking about why Yashida did it.
I am talking about why did the director decide to break his claws.Mangold could have decided to extract his healing factor some other way.But what purpose did breaking Wolverine's adamantium claws achieve?Either the entire adamantium should have been stripped or he should have had adamantium claws.It looks weird that he has an adamantium skeleton and bone claws
