The Tile Score

Here is one of those little tools that do a big job; a simple sharp piece of carbide steel set into a red handle. This carbide scribe is specifically shaped for scoring ceramic tiles so that they can then be snapped at the score mark. This is not the cleanest way to cut ceramic tiles, but it is cheap and it does work.

A diamond saw blade does a cleaner more accurate job - but costs a lot more.
