    Yes - they look split. I went and purchased a decent stone/masonry chisel to put a chiseled edge on my soapstone counters. If I would have had it earlier - I would have tried to split my bricks instead of cutting them in half. It would probably have saved a masonry blade ($50), cut down on the slurry/waste from cutting, and probably have been quicker.

        That broken edge texture might look cool inside a dome.
