    I posted about tiling some external porcelain floor tiles

    I purchased a diamond tile blade for my dewalt 125mm grinder
    Erbauer Masonry/Tile Diamond Cutting Blade 125 x 22.23mm (3434V)
    https://www.screwfix.com/p/erbauer-...g-blade-125-x-22-23mm/3434v?_requestid=265747

    Very disappointed, as it chipped the edge - didn't matter on this occasion as all cut edges are hidden, and after just about 8 cuts of 330mm tiles - blade didn't feel as sharp

    I'm about to tile a small toilet around 6m2 and this time the Cuts will matter

    what would you suggest i use

    I understand Rubi are good
    so
    RUBI PORCELAIN DIAMOND TILE BLADE 115 X 22.2MM (5077K)
    https://www.screwfix.com/p/rubi-porcelain-diamond-tile-blade-115-x-22-2mm/5077k

    115mm can be used in the 125mm dewalt

    OR
    some think like

    I tend to just use https://www.atsdiamondtools.co.uk/ for most of my blades, holesaws etc. Their Turbo X diamond porcelain blade is excellent. I haven't found anything it won't cut yet. Some tiles are more susceptible to chipping than others though.

    just had a chat with ATS , now we have finally ordered the tiles
    Metro 100mm x 300mm x 10mm with a bevel on them.
    ATS think I would be much better off with a wet cutter , and mentioned just a screwfix or toolstation should be OK with one of their blades.
    But looking lots of different options and prices and all poor reviews , so any suggestions
    I guess worse case I would have to cut 40 tiles
    Just a small rectangular room
    doing 2 walls 10 tile high by 7 tiles long , then one tile around the back of the wall 1 meter above the vanity unit, so they may need to be cut and angled/mitered i guess

    dont have much else to tile, maybe a splashback on the utility when i get around to that.

    They start from about £34
    look forward to the comments
    EDIT
    I have been looking at quite a few reviews and most have poor performance
    But I have looked at the ToppsTiles and they seem a good price - I'm sure they are other makes - like
    VITREX
    But the topps tiles seem to have 180mm blades , which I think would give me more choice from ATS or other suppliers
    they do. 450W (£43.89) and 650W (£91.79)

    Anyone have thoughts, or know what make they actually are
