FAQs about masonry tools
Broad knives are essential masonry tools used for plastering and masonry and are perfect for cutting, scraping, and shaving bricks, mortar, tiles, and other masonry materials. A broad knife features a wide blade of up to 30cm in length which gives you more control when working with heavy masonry material. It’s easy to use and can help you get the job done quickly and accurately.
Always wear protective gear such as gloves, goggles and ear protectors when handling masonry tools to avoid injuries from sharp edges or flying particles while cutting. Make sure to keep the blade away from your body at all times, and follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using the tool.

Tile cutters are used to cleanly and accurately cut tiles. They feature a sharp blade that is drawn across the surface of the material to produce clean, accurate lines — perfect for tiling walls and floors with ease. Tile cutters come equipped with replaceable blades and adjustable settings so they can be used on both thin and thick materials. Plus, they’re lightweight yet durable enough to deliver safe, consistent performance time after time.
The right size tile cutter depends on the size of the tiles and materials you’re cutting. Always measure your materials and choose a cutter that can accommodate their size. We recommend choosing a cutter larger than your materials to ensure they have extra room for a clean cut.
When it comes to masonry tools, safety should always be your number one priority. Tile cutters require extra attention due to their sharp blades which are designed to cut through thick, hard materials. Here are a few handy tips for using tile cutters safely:
- Make sure the tile cutter is securely clamped in place – this will help ensure that it remains stable while in use.
- Wear protective gloves when handling tile cutters.
- Hold the tool firmly with both hands and keep fingers away from the blade at all times when in use.
- Don’t force the tool — let the weight of the tool do most of the work for you.
- When finished, make sure to keep masonry tools locked away and out of reach from children.
Remember – masonry tools are powerful and sharp, so always use them with caution!
Replacing your tile cutter depends on the amount of wear and tear as well as the quality of the masonry tools you are using. Wear and tear can include the blades becoming dull or chipped, or the handle or grip becoming loose or cracked. If you find yourself having to apply more pressure than usual in order for your tile cutter to work its magic, then it’s time for a replacement!
Bear in mind that masonry tools such as tile cutters experience more wear and tear over time, so if you’ve been using yours for some time now, it may be time to invest in a new one.
While you can make small, simple cuts to tiles with other tools, we recommend always using a tile cutter to get the best results on your next project.
Tiles are hard-bodied and require a specialized masonry tool to be cut correctly. This makes tile cutters much more efficient than using other masonry tools such as broad knives or saws, which can damage the material and make for an uneven finish.
