I was surfing the web when I came across this little tidbit of monster minutiae. An authentic vampire kit dated from the 1800s was auctioned...
And Now This: Vampire Killing Kits
With some more clicking, I came upon a vampire-slaying kit from nineteenth century Romania that was auctioned on Ebay in 2006 for $1,000 (plus $90-$300 to ship). Though there are some doubts as to the authenticity of this piece, it does include cross-shaped throwing knives, a syringe for injecting liquid garlic, and a pair of metal pliers for quick removal of those pesky vampire fangs.
An old fashioned girl myself, I would much rather prefer a stake jackhammer like the one from Dusk Till Dawn or one of Blade’s knife/guns to get the job done.
