How thick to cut brick flooring

Quick question, sort of....I want to install split brick on my kitchen and breakfast area of the house. I have 3/4 plywood with 1/4 backer board on the floor now(where I tore out old tile from a water leak) I have the brick on my truck that I bought today. The big question is how thick to slice the brick? everywhere I read I see 1/2" thick. That is putting me way higher then the hardwood iam butting up to in the next rooms. tile is what? 1/4 or 3/8? The slate in my foyer looks like 3/8". Whats the thinnest I can slice this old brick? Seems like 1/4 on a heavy morter bed would never break. Thanks
If iam not making sense here, let me know
