This is a premium tool at a great price!

(Customer's Reviews)

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 like this.

(Customer's Reviews)

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.


Great Little Cutter

I purchased this cutter to replace a different one was worn out. Honestly, this jewel is far superior!
