sting

I just had another facepalm moment

My excuse is, although I've been reading LOTR for more than half a century, I read it before I read The Hobbit and it so overshadowed the earlier book for me that I didn't learn to love it enough until about a decade ago.

Still, I knew Sting got it's name because it was the Spider's Bane.
So why did it take me so long to recognize how that foreshadows the means of Shelob's defeat?
