I don't think Claymores are inmortal. Well, they are certainly not immortal, but what I mean is that they are not inmune to aging. They age, as we have seen little trainees growing up to become warrior women. Why do you guys think they won't become oldwomen in the future?
The thoery that they are immortal is based on the fact that the source material the Asakaram don´t age to the point of their bodies breaking down from "old age" as it´s called.
Hence to why the Claymores are forever young and at the peak of their physical condition forever.
They don´t decay.
Evident by that Dae could have the perfect bodies of the three number ones in his lab that died god knows how many decades ago and they were still in their prime condition.
They showed no sign of cellular decay, meaning that the claymore body is incapable of such thing.
And old age is cellular decay on a slower rate... and therefor not possible for the claymore body.
They will never be old women. They will forever be twenty-something for the rest of their lives until they get killed... not "die"... "Killed" as they are above death by old age, poisoning, disease and dementia.
Which is the natural causes of death in a human body....
are you following my line of thought?
Don't the Asakaram decay at rapid speed, the reason they are kept alive? So that wouldn't apply to why the bodies didnt decay. If they share biological similarity with the asakarams. I have just assumed they didn't age because they have regenerative ability. as long as that ability endures, they wouldn't have an aging problem I imagine.
As for why they grow to maturity, it is phyiscal improvement which is not the same as aging (in the sense of loss of physical capacities

Don't claymore heal their wounds fast, therefore any attempt to pinch them for blood would get rejected?
Would they not need a blood transfusion facility to care for all the handlers?
Accepting to give blood for unknown reasons would make the claymores appear as mindless obedient creatures. They would eventually end up suspecting something.
Will it not make the handlers be noticed with yoki perception, since the blood in their veins contains yoki?
First, let's take a look on what Yoki is and what it's capable of (as far as we know). Yoki is, by means we can only speculate about, produced somewhere within the bodies of Yoma, warriors and Awakened Beings. Also, to varying degrees, all of the aforementioned beings can control how much Yoki they are producing (like "10 per cent" e.g.)
The produced (read: released) Yoki can be sensed by other beings that are able to use Yoki. For that to be possible, though, the released Yoki has to get to the sensory Organ responsible for sensing Yoki (which I assume is the brain). To compare that with our world, to be able to detect something, it needs to be some kind of particle that, when getting to the detector, has to cause some kind of reaction, in other words submit a force or transport energy. Getting back to Yoki, it's something that can be detected - in other words are particle submitting a force or delivering energy.
So now, as stated, Yoki is produced somwhere in the bodies of beings that are able to decide how much of it they produce. Now, if you take blood from them, even if Yoki was to be produced in the blood itself, then nothing would be able to control the production of that bloods Yoki anymore. In other words, as soon as whatever kind of fuel Yoki production needs is completely gone from the blood, it would not emit Yoki anymore, and hence, if given as a transfusion to a human, the human could not be detected with Yoki Perception.
Though, this would not explain why the MiB don't age, at least not, if Yoki is what's stopping the aging process (what I assume it is), after all there wouldn't be any Yoki in their bodies.
That being said, I don't think that blood transfusions have anything to do with it, because IF there actually was Yoki in that blood, and if they would also want to keep the proposed side effects of it - no aging, slightly stronger than normal humans, Dea's apparant ability to not feel pain and survive huge injuries (at least for quite a it of time) - up at all times, the Yoki had to stay in the blood. In that case the handlers would need to be able to produce Yoki themselves or they would need considerable amounts of donations. In any case, they would develop an aura. A weak one, maybe, but even then somebody like Galatea should still be able to sense it.
Also, I think, that, if MiB would emit Yoki we had been told about something this major already.
