How to Cut Murrini

How to cut murrini with wheeled tile nippers. While there are many ways to cut murrini, this is my favorite. First you'll need a pair of wheeled tile nippers that open wide enough for the wheels to fit around the fattest part of the rod. If the wheels aren't lined up on the widest part, you'll get uneven, broken cuts. Hold the rod as shown in the first picture. Line up the nippers so it's where you want the cut. Hold your thumb lightly against the end. Squeeze the wheeled nippers firmly. As long the wheels are touching the fattest part of the rod, you should get nice, even cuts.
