Re: Clinkers

"Clinkers" sound like the bricks that got more direct heat when fired and are dark, dense and sometimes misshappen. If that is the case they will absorb mortar/moisture less and be more difficult to lay. And fewer courses can be set in a day. Kind of like setting warped pavers in a wall. Figure on a higher installation cost. I'm sure they can be very beautiful.
