Nut File - Edge-Cut, for slotting guitar nuts
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.
