paws and claws - resources or commission?

i am currently working on a suit that needs BIG EVIL PAWS with NASTY SHARP CLAWS. my original plan was to do these myself, but i am horribly busy with the rest of the suit, and more importantly i'm not sure if i can find the right materials for the actual sharp claw bits. i was going to actually weld up or sharpen up some steel or aluminum bits, but that's more of a project than i have time for!

i'm looking for big sharp claws (plastic or metal, at least several inches in size) for cheap. the taxidermy sites i've looked at all charge upwards of $2 per claw, which is too much. failing that, i'm wondering if anyone out there would be interested in a commission for the paws (i'd provide the fur). i don't want to spend more than $10 or $20 total, preferably much less.

please let me know if you have any tips or would be interested in making them for me. thanks!
