A tile saw with sufficient blade diameter isn't as efficient compared to band saw, but unless intentional (thickness unknown) the water jet kerf will require a lot of unproductive dressing to square up.
That said, if I was bandsawing, the "back side" surfaces would be inclined; clearly indicating those actually square and parallel.
While it’s better than my hand work on a diamond blade bandsaw, the large flat faces on the Norton stones I’ve used are not square enough to safely clamp or stack. Most seems to be a bit convex, but that’s not a rule and my sample size is small. For those I’ve been using the combination stones so between the color pattern and surface roughness differences it’s clear which sides are cut.
