Where's my butter knife?

Over the years truss rod nuts become knarled and chewed up usually because the only tool used to adjust them (this system) was usually a flat screwdriver (or butter knife) after removing the nut, filing the burrs off, the wrench fitted perfectly!!... the length of the stem could be longer or even a handle attached for added leverage especially if the nut is stubborn to remove or firmly stuck in place...that is, if its not all knarled up in the first place?? as the actual nut needs to be clean, so, great on new guitars and for giving a final tweak of the "cleaned up" nut when all strung up...but to remove or adjust worn and knarled up nuts...nope...
