Rough beveled edge face on Travertine cuts?


RE: Rough beveled edge face on Travertine cuts?
We are tiling the terrace and Gazebo floor with some Travertine. The Tiles come in odd shapes (a pattern) and the edges of the tiles are rough cut rustic beveled.. They are a perfect 90 degrees, but the face edge is beveled rough,
Is there any tool or technique to simulate the same rough edge bevel on the cuts we perform? If not, we might end up with some edges rough beveled and some with a razor edge. Another concern with a razor edge the risk of bodily harm. Travertine is a solid rock so one plus is that if over time the edges chip or wear it will continue to have a very natural look.
Thanks for any help or information!

I just read up on this.. The process is called chiseled edge. and the process is called chipping. I can't find any machine that will do this on the job site.. also should it be done before or after the the cut tile is set over the edge?

I don't know how much you have to do, but I've used old rasps and files on travertine (it's pretty soft stuff) when I have to match tile edges when tiling a bathroom. You could also use an angle grinder with a diamond blade, a belt sander or even a drill with a carborundum bit.
