The pain of the bone claws coming out was ridiculous.
Which is why his body had never sensibly through to do that for his first 200 years on this planet... Since he was traumatized as a boy.
Metal claws = Training claws.
Intermediate training pain in preparation of the real pain you get from popping bone claws.
While I don't think the exact year is known, he was probably born in the 1880s or 1890s. So, Wolverine is probably only around 120, not 200 by The Wolverine. Besides that, I'm not quite sure what your post was about, although if he hadn't been using his claws before the adimantiukm )and he was using the bone claws from what I've seen) the pain could be a reason he didn't use them regularly, but in the movie universe I'm pretty sure, even ignoring Origins, he was using his claws before they were metal. Witht he comics I'm not sure, but it wouldn't surprise me.
