why does VenDell react the way he did when wax called him a metal born?

Does this imply VenDell has access to the metallic arts?

I think it is just that VenDell is an more old style kandra who finds fighting people or even interacting with ordinary humans off putting.

Yeah, if you read closely, Wax is calling him a "metalborn" in Ch. 4 of Bands of Mourning after VenDell had given his little lecture about the Metallic Arts, including hemalurgy, and discussing the nature of kandra Blessings as an expression of hemalurgy. And he includes MeLaan in that reckoning, who is already going with them ("we could use another Metalborn").

In a kandra's case it really is being "metalborn", because they consider the Blessings as conferring sapience and identity to a mistwraith, i.e., being born.

And VenDell's reaction is not upset at being called one, he is objecting to "going into the field" the way MeLaan is. That's not his bag, baby!
