At Waterford Crystal we practice two types of cutting, Wedge Cutting and Flat Cutting. Advances in technology mean that today we use industrial diamond tipped wheels to cut the crystal, the diamond wheel gives a high quality and cut to the crystal. The Master cutter must rely on his own skill to judge the amount of pressure that is required to hold the crystal to the wheel, too much pressure will cause a cut through to the other side
Each of our craftsmen has trained for a minimum of 8 years to master their craft. They are responsible for giving each piece the clear and sparkling cut that is the distinctive hallmark of Waterford Crystal.
