DiamondCut™ Nut Slotting Files

About This Item

Files that cut with exacting precision and won't EVER go dull
These professional nut slotting files are coated with industrial diamonds, making them the smoothest and finest cutting files we've ever made. Yes, they're expensive, but they're the last nut files you'll EVER need.

Our Gauged Nut Slotting Files have been the industry standard for years. We knew we could redefine the standard and completely revolutionize this crucial task. We set out with an ambitious goal: to make the longest lasting, most precise, fastest working nut files ever. Not only that, they also had to cut through even the hardest nut and saddle materials.

Diamonds are a luthier's best friend
After researching countless metals, abrasives, and file types we found that diamonds are simply the best for slotting nuts and saddles:

  • The diamond coating perfectly matches the rounded shape of the string—you'll cut a rounded bottom and straight sides, all at the same time. No other file can do this.
  • The evenly distributed diamond particles create a perfectly smooth slot; even the finest toothed files can chatter and leave tool marks.
  • They cut on the push AND pull stroke, doubling cutting speed, and making the job much faster.
  • These files don't drift when cutting like toothed files—you'll cut a straight slot, ideal for better sound, intonation, and playability.

And, diamonds cut through anything quickly and accurately! Bone, Corian, fossilized ivory, brass, zinc—nothing stops these files.

"These files cut faster and more accurately than traditional toothed files and have made it so much faster to slot a blank nut. And while they're on the expensive side, they're an investment I wouldn't hesitate to make again!"
—Erick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisor

A tool for discerning luthiers and players
If you make your living satisfying the demands of professional players, these files will consistently elevate your nut, saddle, and set-up work. These are an investment in building your reputation as a craftsman that you won't regret. Backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee, these prized tools will earn their keep on your bench for decades.

To make files this fine and precise, we had to vary the grit. The 0.010" and 0.013" are 400-grit, the 0.016" and 0.020" are 300-grit, and the 0.024"-0.056" are 150-grit. The finer grit lets even the thinnest files cut straight and smooth without "wandering" like thinner files will do.

Used a couple the other day and WOW

As most reviews say, these files cut exceptionally! The are pricey for my budget but I would definitely buy them if they came with a different size cut on each side, like the stew Mac double
Sided standard nut files I currently use. Does any one agree with me on this ? I think it would
Take them to another level of amazing as well as make them available to more people on a budget. Well here’s hoping ??

In a busy the amount and time these will save you makes them well worth it. Also as with a well-sharpened chisel, you have better control with these. Save up your pennies and get these, you won’t go back

Worth the Price

Great files, super quick and super smooth.

The only negative is that they don't come in larger sizes for bass. Hopefully they will in the future.

I have to agree with Evan and Roger, these are the best thing since the string winder. Our shop repairs thousands of guitars per year and we go through sets of old style nut files constantly. These are so straight and cut so fast and smooth and in both directions. It's like having a better than brand new nut file every time you use it. We have cut at least 10 new nuts and have used them to adjust another 50 since we have gotten them and they are worth the money. If they only last twice as long as a normal file, they would still be worth it.

Best Ever!

I have been waiting 47 years for nut files that cut this well. They are controllable, they don't clog, and hopefully will last for years. No other nut file I have ever used comes close to these. They are worth every penny. Accumulate your set gradually as your funds permit.

Just amazing!

I can't remember the last time I completely replaced a type of tool I have been using for decades for something new. These files are absolutely incredible. I use them constantly in the shop. They cut so much faster than the standard files and time is money in a busy shop. They also look awesome when the light catches them! Gotta love sparkles!
