These Ishii Tile Cutters come with with spring loaded base and their low curved handle design gives excellent leverage (8:1 ratio). This results in deep scores with minimal effort, for clean consistent cuts. Modified sliding bearing block and the hard-heated rails and overall sturdy construction are the reasons these cutters have become the industry standard. They last, are easy to use, and produce clean smooth cuts all on hard porcelain tile.

- Happy with this
I am an avid DIYer and have limited experience with tile cutting. I was able to make really nice straight cuts through porcelain mosaic tile after just a few tries to get used to it.
The tool was shipped to Texas with basically no padding at all. This concerned me but it survived the journey with the rails still straight. The 3 dollar float I bought was packed in a gallon of packing peanuts.... mystery.
Have used this on hard porcelain tile. It is an excellent cutter. Master Wholesale had a competitive price and shipped out same day as order. Packaging could be better...it's just in a thin box with packing peanuts sprinkled inside...but fortunately the cutter was not damaged in transport.
- Excellant Company
Great service and very timely shipping. Good price for a quality product.
- This works quite well
Shipping was fast. There are no instructions with the Ishii, I guess they figure only professionals buy it. Thankfully, the people at Masterwholesale have a video on the website for those of us who are NOT pros. The ishii works as advertised, even on porcelain tiles. The only caveat I have is to make sure you start the score at the very beginning of the tile so it scores all the way across the tile, if you miss a spot at the beginning your porcelain tile won't break cleanly. Providing you do that, the ishii works beautifully and quickly. Cutting small, thick floor tiles takes more pressure to break but the ishii is up to it and they will still break cleanly. It's way easier to carry than a wet saw, just don't expect to cut curved lines with it but for straight or angled cuts it works fine . It's a well made and designed tool.
Really nice im recomended
