Hi Pat, :)

I'm pretty sure the tiles you have are glazed. As Davy mentioned, "Saltillo" tiles, AKA Mexican tiles, are not glazed.

I always use a wet saw. If you begin with a very shallow cut and then work into it over several passes you can end up with a good looking grout joint. What happens beyond the grout really doesn't...
