Super Cutters

Bought two of these cutters and am so glad I did. Great quality for the price!! Highly recommend these if you’re looking for quality cutters. Super fast shipping as well!

Does not cut close to the peg.

By

Disappointed. Expected a specially ground cutter to permit cutting the string flush with the peg. This tool has the same shape of the cutting edge as a regular cutter, thus leaving ~1mm of the string protruding from the surface after a "flush" cut.

Very Sharp & Compact

The string cutter has a very comfortable and ergonomic grip and easily cuts all of my guitar strings, leaving a good clean cut. No dings in the blades either. I've added a simple Velcro loop that I slip on and off as needed to keep the grips closed.

Should have bought these years ago

There really is a big difference between these cutters and the off-the-shelf small diagonal cutters I bought. The jaws are definitely harder on this set. My old cutters are really meant for cutting copper wire; they worked but dulled quickly. This cutter cleanly cuts strings with ease.

Went to Home Depot, Lowes, and Ace. They didn't have it. Found it at StewMac. They've got it.

It's a string cutter!

For cutting musical instrument wire. It's very difficult to find a decent set of cutters these days, as 99.97% of all companies are cutting corners (ha!) with tool manufacturing -especially cutting tools. These are about as good as my little blunt-faced Stanley cutter from 1990. I do prefer "front-type" cutters for precision and safety, but these are fine.

I hope the cutting edge holds up.

Better!

After having worn out or destroyed other electronics wire clippers not designed to cut metal strings, these are much better.
