    "Wire-cut bricks are cured or fired pieces of clay that have been formed into brick shapes with the aid of a wire cutter of some sort. The simplest cutters are little more than wire cording that people press into large mounds of clay to divide it into smaller portions.

    One of the biggest advantage to the wire-cutting process is that it produces a much more affordable product; bricks made this way are easier to produce, require less material, and also take much less time to create than a pressed version of brick. A typical block of clay will produce six to nine bricks once cut and cured"

    "Wire cut bricks are factory made. They are normally higher in strength and are more consistent in their look as there factory made where as normal bricks are man made. They are however normally a little more expensive.

    Kind regards"
