@Jeb, I think the point of Cutter freaking out about Skywise marking the Lodestone was to contrast Cutter and Skywise's viewpoint on space and the stars. Cutter is mistrustful and suspicious of such things, Skywise is open and comfortable (a thread that continues to be woven throughout the tale). Also, after Picknose's treachery, I think Cutter is on extra high alert for trouble in a way that he wasn't in the heat of the moment of his "attack" on Greymung when he chipped the piece out in the first place.
