I'm rusty on GURPS so I'm looking over it really quick.

Claws looks like all it does (in general, varies depending on the type of claws you have) is increase damage per die for unarmed attacks.

Weapon Master does the exact same thing, but with weapons, and unarmed isn't using weapons. If I were DMing I would say no and point you to "Trained by a Master" for an advantage to increase your unarmed effectiveness and to unlock cinematic skills and abilities.

The skills "Brawling" and "Karate" can also increase unarmed damage. The advantage "Striking ST" will boost your damage as well.

Just get Brawling skill up to DX+2 level, or other unarmed melee skills (Karate, Judo, Boxing...).

That will increase your damage.
