The Best Tile Cutter for Any Tile: Montolit Masterpiuma

What’s the best tile cutter for any type of tile?

We take a look at the Montolit Masterpiuma P3 tile cutter today.

And needless to say, it’s very impressive.

If you need to cut ceramic, porcelain, or glass tile the Masterpiuma is a great option.

Let’s dive in.


What is the Montolit Masterpiuma?

Montolit is an Italian company that makes some of the best tiling tools in the world.

Many professionals know and love Montolit because of their quality.

The Masterpiuma is a manual tile cutter.

Masterpiuma Tile Cutter

The titanium coated cutting wheel can score ceramic, porcelain, or glass tile.

Once the tile is scored the breaking bar is push down to split the tile.

Cut Tile with the Masterpiuma

We chose the 24″ Montolit Masterpiuma because it can cut 12″x24″ tile.

Cutting Large Tile with Masterpiuma

That said, Montolit has a variety of Masterpiuma sizes for any type of project.

We love this tile cutter for a variety of reasons, but

Here’s the deal,

99% of the Masterpiuma is made of steel!!!

This tile cutter should last decades and is well worth the investment.

We don’t feel this way about most of the tile cutters sold in box stores.

The Masterpiuma In Action

We love testing tools and seeing what they can do.

Obviously tile cutters can’t do everything, like cut holes in tile for bathroom accessories or toilet flanges.

But this tile cutter can make the wet saw unnecessary for some projects.

Our video explores how to use the Masterpiuma to cut

  • Porcelain tile
  • Tiles at 45 degree angles
  • Small slivers
  • And glass mosaics

Hopefully you’re excited by what you see…

    Oh how I wish I had this when I did my laundry room floors. With the wet saw, I was covered in dirty water that was slung back on me while the saw was in use. There doesn’t appear to be hardly any mess with the Masterpiuma. Great tool!

    1. No mess at all Deb. And it works well for any type of tile, well worth the money.

    Well, I do own a Master piuma, and indeed is a good cutter… I like to use it for cutting mosaic tile for backsplashes…. Clean cut, specially in glass with no chipping at the edges… Also great for large format tiles…
    But, like always I’d a but… The two red stoppers at the sides are broke…. Very cheap material.. and the plastic handle that secure the angle need it to make the cut, strip with in a few months and now have to use my pliers to secure the angle.
    Don’t know if the didn’t have a case for mine due to the size but they should include one .. after all is not a cheap cutter…and for the amount we paid should include one or have the option to purchase one….to be able to protect the investment….
