    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    Anyway, Ceramics break easily & can end up leaving forensic evidence in the victim.

    Yes indeed !

    I've even seen "sabatier" knives made in PRC (people's republic of China) which is absurd

    Pukka Sabatiers are made in Thiers in France, by one of 5 or 6 makers, but even then, my two 35 year old "Lion brand" Carbon steel Sabatiers are fantastic, but I struggle to get nearly as good an edge on my more recent "le Sabatier" brand one. Recently bought a Wusthof , and despite it being stainless I'm quite imressed. I don't like the modern "Ikon" handle but would certainly go for their more Sabatier like traditional range. Being a German maker, the blade is a bit more curved and a bit more chunky than French style Sabatier but a pretty good bet. I use a "steel" for regular sharpening suplemented with a daimond hone when needed, and every few years, re-shaped / ground with a belt sander when needed.

    Another hint, is rather than looking for a set, just buy single general purpose chef's knife, probably 8" - which you can use for everything. If you then need need a bigger or smaller one, get it, but you'll have proven the brand, and handle shape for your purposes, and by only buying one, you can buy a very nice knife indeed without worrying about cost too much

    Something to consider in the 'risk assessment' though.

    There is an historic site in Suffolk, an old Cistercian Abbey. Considering one of the nearby, local residents, I often wonder if the archaeologists check the ages of the bodies they dig up there......
    Just saying.

    I could bury whatever I wanted there, it hasn't been looked at since the 1920s. Why bother with that trip when there's the little used church next door with a steady supply of new graves though? There's not even any cctv and the lights are only triggered if you go up to the main door.

    So I can visit the "wildlife area" near you and not have to worry about coming across shallow graves?

    I was joking. Sibton Park calls itself a wilderness reserve.
