Cause he needs the other hand to wipe his butt!

But seriously a co-worker was talking about this earlier. The movies never explained why he only used one hand. One would think two hands with claws would be a more effective weapon. Did he run out of razors?

Why does Freddy Kruger only use one hand for claws?

Probably for the same reason Uncle Phil didn't pick up Will from the airport.

i imagine getting the second glove on after putting the first one on would be pretty damn hard.

Can't he just use that station at Steamworks you talk about? Or does that need a hand to operate?

I like that no matter where he posts on DVD Talk, mhg83 can never escape his otter life...and deservingly so!

Well he is a pedophile. So I assume the other hand is to "relieve" himself once he's killed a little kid.

Before anyone asks, I didn't mean that as a joke. I seriously think that's why only one claw hand made sense to him. Of course riotinmyskull came up with a good reason as well.

Didn't you watch the remake? He's taking Polaroids with the other hand. lol

Because he probably requires the other hand to be functional. Although with all those scars, I doubt he cares about scratching himself at this point.

They probably couldn't afford to have another glove made.

From a creative standpoint, it's more unsettling. It makes him asymmetrical, something we don't often encounter in living creatures. And it's more memorable. Plenty of monsters have claws on both hands. Only Freddy has the one.

It would be pretty hard to do anything if the other hand had claws too, wouldn't it?

Freddy wouldn't be able to grab his victims by the neck then slash them if he was wearing claws on each hand.

Yeah, do you know how hard it is to take care of business with a glove made of knives?

On second thought mhg83, don't answer that.

I like Supermallet's answer, although it would be hard to scratch any random itches if he had claws on both hands.

Same reason people only use one gun most of the time.

I'm suddenly reminded of that poem that begins:

Captain Hook must remember not to pick his nose
Captain Hook must remember not to scratch his toes
