Wolverine’s Claw Can Be Released and Retracted Individually
If you have been reading his comics, you would know that he could release all his three claws one both hand at the same time, and he could also release a single claw. He has individual control on each of the claws, and he can extend them one by one and as little or as much as he wants.
He doesn’t usually do that during a fight. He would use all six claws. Six Wolverine claws do significantly more damage than just one.

Weapon X Program Gave Him Adamantium Claws
Adamantium skeleton is one of Wolverine’s greatest assets. The metal made Wolverine effectively indestructible, he can withstand almost anything, and making his claws incredible sharp and lethal.
Molten adamantium was implanted on his skeleton. The metal was bonded by the Weapon X Program, a secret government branch dedicated to weaponizing super-humans.
He was the ideal candidate due to his extraordinary healing factor that helped him withstand the trauma.
Since the Weapon X Program, his claws have become even deadlier and can cut through almost any material, and they are far more dangerous than any sword.

Wolverine’s claws cut through his flesh every time he extends them. However, his healing factor seals the wounds within seconds.
Unsheathing his claws actually brings him significant pain. He suffers from as much pain as anyone else would experience whenever his adamantium claws break through his flesh.
He feels it!
Ya, he heals easily, but then he will cut himself again when he uses his claws. It will cut each and every time it happens in the future. His healing factor doesn’t come with anesthetic.
