Great Tool!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I'm a geezer, been playing guitar for over 40 years. These are by far the best string cutters I have ever used. I have tossed many of the cheapies away over the years after they get those little notches in the blades. These are worth the price. I like my strings cut right at the post. Also, restringing a guitar is an acquired skill. Many do it poorly. As a side bonus they make great toe nail clippers! I know Ewww... Whatever. ;-)

Just got these and did one string change. Super sharp, compact, not nearly as clunky as my old diagonal cutters. Like them a lot so far.

Exception String Cutters

Okay, what's so special about a pair of string cutters? First of all, these are top quality, and they do what they're supposed to do, effortlessly. Plus, they have a really nice feel to them. All of us tool users understand that tools are extensions of ourselves, and when they feel that way, they're a joy to use. These string cutters fit the bill.

Perfect tool for removing bridge pins

Just the right size for removing bridge pins...makes getting the pins out so much easier than the golf tee up through the inside of the bridge. Perfect size as well.

Good tool for the guitar toolbox

I just ordered one of these string cutters and was quickly and sadly disappointed when I saw the jaws crumbling and chipping after restringing a few guitars. Come to find out StewMac had actually sent me the wire cutters instead of the string cutters. They swiftly shipped me out the right tool which seemed to work much better for clipping strings. I never really gave it much thought until now but apparently the density and hardness of the steel in most guitar strings is enough to quickly destroy a pair of light weight wire cutters.

This is a premium tool at a great price!

This is simply the best pair of side cutters I've found at anywhere near this price. Check out the big box stores and see what they have. They'll probably cost a few bucks more and the cutting jaw will not close accurately. They simply won't cut an E or B string. This set from Stew Mac has jaws that are sharp and line up absolutely perfectly. I'm getting a second set to keep at my wiring bench.

I have used many cutters in my 53 years of playing and replacing strings, but I like this one very much. I like the size and spring action, and it cuts quick and clean.
