I too enjoy well written gardening books.  Dr. Hessayon's were so useful to me as a beginner.  I guess his time is up now, alas.

And, as I said before, burning doesn't "do" for them either, at least not in a usual garden burn up.  It was quite eerie to see an apparent piece of charcoal with new shoots showing. will never die

Dannyboy, try to use those rocks imaginatively. An edging of them won't look right.  Maybe think of them as a rock fall.....viz., more near the top and to one side and trailing off to just a few on the other. The rocks, if skilfully arranged, should look good in their own right.  With the gravel it could look very nice.

Maybe a ribbon of identical plants, maybe a grass (like Imperata red baron) to simulate water trickling down...?  

Could you post a photo or a sketch of what you want to do?

Yes break.  Jap knotweed is unlike any other weed. And even a very small piece can become an immense problem in your garden
