    Damn you, now you made me go and fish out those comic books.

    Wolverine # 47

    Sentry grabs Wolverine Adamantium Claws with his *hands*, holding around the sharp edge. Not a scratch, he holds them as if it was nothing.

I remember this debate coming up years ago and i dont think Sentry really makes contact with the edge of the blade at all. The guy has the speed to grab them wherever he wants and he exerts contact on the flat of the blade. I dont think you could definitively say either way but based on the historical efficacy of the blades I think there is good reason to think Sentry avoided most if not all contact with the edge of the blade.

    He then bends the blades inwards, exerting a lot of force (Wolverine even cries out in agony), tearing tendons and stuff inside Wolverines arms. Still not leaving a scratch on his hands. So lets not try to ignore that fact.

    Gladiator beat Wolverine into a bloody broken pulp in New X-Men #124, and didn't have a scratch on him.

    Now if that isn't enough, then some common sense should. Lets say I give you an adamantium knife. Does this mean you can cut through steel walls and cement as if it was butter? Of course not, you need considerable force. Remember, the metal is virtually unbreakable, not magically sharp. Wolverine having around Captain America level strength is able to cut Hulk (with effort), but guys like Sentry and Superman, who has a hard durability on a whole other level? No chance.

I dont think Sentry and Superman have hard durability an order of magnitude above someone like Thor or Hulk and Logan has a history of cutting through things he shouldnt like steel walls and concrete.
