Wasp-Sting is Uhtred's seax or short-sword.

The Saxon Stories[edit | edit source]

"Wasp-Sting [...] was my short sword, a sax, and it was a wicked blade in a close fight where men are so crammed together that there is no room to swing a long sword or an axe."[1]

  • The blacksmith Ealdwulf forged Wasp-Sting in the Autumn of 872.[2]
