Scratching Posts
A scratching post is a good investment even with clipped claws, a cat needs his own place to scratch.
When cats scratch, they are getting necessary exercise for their upper body, including paws and legs, and helping to shed the outer claw.
Claws actually grow in with points. When the point is clipped, a new claw point begins to grow. If the claws are clipped regularly, the point has no chance to grow out.
What Kind?
There are many types of scratching posts or toys. Some are covered with carpet, some with rope. Some are just wood. Some are tall posts, some are cones, some lie flat on the ground, some can be attached to a doorknob.

It is well worth trying another type if your cat is not interested in the post you have.

Consumer Cat Note:
Some of our cats would like to see scratching posts made with a larger base so they can really get a heartfelt workout without the post tipping over. A sturdy post competes better with a couch, which is sturdy. You may want to attach the post to a larger base, or wedge its edge under furniture to make it more stable.
