Erbauer Diamond Tile Blade 180mm x 22.2mm Bore
Exactly what was needed for floor tiles. Even better with the discounted price!

Not too bad
I've used a couple of these now and have been satisfied.
Not for trade I think, who need to get through the work quickly, but if you are patient and feed the tile slowly theyâre OK and good value at the current price (c. 6.00). You should finish a bathroom (porcelain floor, ceramic walls) with one blade (I did), but I'd have a spare.
The current job involves 10mm 500 grade porcelain and the blade I'm using seems to cope. It's predecessor died almost instantly when I lost concentration and failed to top up the water to ensure a COPIOUS supply.

Spend a bit more!!!
Works well for a while, but once the outer layer of diamonds have warn away the blade does not cut very well.
I was unable to cut all the ceramic tiles for 1 bathroom before replacing the blade.

Not suitable for porcelain
I bought this as a replacement for a Titan blade, which Screwfix no longer sell. I was tiling a bathroom with 18m2 of 10mm porcelain tiles. The Titan blade was quite old when I started the job, but lasted very well before dying with the end of the job in sight. The Erbauer blade was the cheapest 180mm/22mm bore blade that Screwfix sell. It started well but the blade blunted after about 10 cuts (600 x 300mm tiles). It would probably be fine for ceramic tiles but it was not up to porcelain..
