Cutting porcelain tiles? See the video to compare one of our professional diamond blades against a low price product.

There is a huge variety of diamond blades available on the market for cutting porcelain tiles. Placing them side by side it could be said that the only difference between any of them is the price, their shape and size.

Unfortunately it is very difficult to understand at a glance whether it is a professional product because some manufacturers tend to copy the successful models aesthetically and then offer them at competitive prices but for sure the quality isn’t the same.

The only way to verify their quality is to trial these blades by making test cuts in various ceramic and porcelain tiles
. Very quickly you will find
out if the so called ‘hard disk’ will actually cut the tile. And produce the expected level of finish at an acceptable cutting speed.

Certainly the life of a diamond blade is always a topic of conversation. How long it should last is difficult to know and understand when comparing
it with past experiences. Different materials will have an effect on how many meters could be cut before the blade life is expended. Other factors such as forcing the cut will affect blade life, the finished edge and cutting speed, etc. All these issues will become evident within a few feet of tile cutting.


Testing therefore will give you an indication how long the blade may last. Immediately you will get an indication of the quality of the disc for cutting your ceramic material and if it gives value for money.


To help you and provide a practical demonstration of how these arguments work out in practice, we made a video comparing two continuous rim diamond blades, testing them on a high quality porcelain tile.


  • The first part of the video is a demonstration using a cheap floppy diamond disc purchased at a discount store.
  • The second video shows one of our discs that is aesthetically similar, but is a professional use medium-term item which is made with quality raw materials and a special diamond segment processing technology.

The video speaks for itself.


The first disc “burns out” after a few centimeters – even smashing the tile.
The second diamond cutting blade works well and without any problems. It leaves the tile intact and a good finish to the cut edge.

The price difference between diamond blades may not only mean that the cheap versions do not last but that they won’t even cut porcelain.
All too often this translates into higher costs due to wasted time and damage to the tiles when you use diamond blades and associated tools that are not suitable for the job.
