Nut File - Edge-Cut, for slotting guitar nuts

Starting at: $11.50
In Stock

Edge cut nut files in popular gauges specially designed for slotting nuts. These files cut a smooth, round bottom slot. Also great for slotting tune-o-matic bridge saddles!

Always try and use a file gauge that’s not more than a couple thousandths larger than the gauge of string you are using. Smaller files can be used to create wider slots by using a side-to-side movement while cutting.

  • 4.5” cutting edge
  • Double sided (both sides are the same gauge)
  • 10 gauges available
  • Sold individually*
  • Made In Japan

*See S-T213-SET for a set of all 10 sizes.

Yes, the sides of the non-cutting surface are smooth.

It is indeed rounded. It is difficult to represent this in the photo as it is a very small detail.

You could likely find a file with a slightly rounder cut and a bit more rigidity in its construction, but you would pay three times the price. These files are a great value and worked very well for me. Very pleased with the product and with Amplified Parts every time I've used them for tubes and pots as well.

I bought two sizes of these small files, along with much larger Hosco file set that has 2 slot sizes on it (one on each side). My issue here is that they are very thin, small and harder to work with. They do work, and they cut well, but the are (relatively) paper thin. Not sure how long they will last, especially if I accidentally break one. They would get 4 stars if they were under $10, and 5 stars if they were closer to $5.

I bought 6 files. Each came in its own plastic sleeve. Each is uniform and provides smooth, consistent cuts. I'm glad I bought them instead of more expensive alternatives.
