      Ha ha this thread is taking on sinister qualities but then I did call it 'which saw for bones'.

      I've ended up finding a really cheap little hacksaw in a diy store, didn't know they could be that cheap. Now to defrost one of my legs of lamb.....

      Out of interest, what I do is do a meat on the bone roast, then once the meats been eaten I cut up the bone for broth, I find that although its already been cooked once, it still makes awesome broth.

          Yes I find that if you cook a whole fish in the oven, then set aside the head and backbone you can make a fantastic broth with that too - worthy of just drinking on the spot

            I doubt autopsy saws are disposable, they look heavy duty. They probably just clean them well between uses.

              Yea, you wouldn't want to cause an infection in a corpse.

              I use my battery powered Saws-all. Hacksaw blades have very fine teeth but check for replacement blades with fewer teeth.

                IF anything www.budk.com usually has cheap field dressing kits, not as good as a real hunter's bone saw or butcher's saw but cheap. You can usually find a horn and antler saw for 30-50$, they'll work well too http://www.butcher-packer.com has some options
