November 18, 2008: Vampire Killing Kit
Zombies are easy... all you need is a 12 gage shotgun and a good supply of ammo.
Well you missed the boat on this one, but keep checking the estate sales, auctions and ebay.
Oh, and save your pennies.

200 years old garlic? C'mon!
amykins Tuesday Nov 18 04:18 AM
Holy cow! That's so cool! Has it been used??? Or is it "brand new"? I wonder if they can swab it for blood, 200 yr old blood.

QVC has 'em cheaper.

From the look of those bottles, that holy water has crossed into the realm of un-holy.

1800? really? hmm. Dracula wasn't published until 1897.

I watched Martin just this weekend. That stuff doesn't work.

Edit: And while I was looking for my picture of his portrait hanging in Schloss Ambras (unfortunately not saved on this PC) Shawnee beat me to the punch.

$14,850 is quite a bit of money to spend on a vampire killing kit, unless, of course, one is a vampire and wants to keep it out of unfriendly hands. Then I'd go as high as $15,000.

lol...That kit looks so orthodox too, makes me wonder if these kits were actually supported by the catholic church at one point.

I'm surprised the garlic has held up. In my experience it will relatively quickly either rot into mush, or start sprouting. Maybe it was dried out first?
Trilby Tuesday Nov 18 01:26 PM
So far, my garlic has lasted a good while. AND it's working! No vampires in the kitchen since I got it! But I do have 's
TheMercenary Tuesday Nov 18 03:54 PM
Very cool. But you know there are a lot of really good fake antiques out there.
Shawnee123 Tuesday Nov 18 04:01 PM
Heeheee. Faux antique vampire killing kits: available only at Pottery Barn!

So my question is: what happens uf you come across a vampire who is Jewish or Hindu or Buddhist or Muslim or any of the other religions that don't believe in this version of the Bible and who don't use a Cross? This looks like a great business opportunity in these troubled times selling custom Specific Religion Anti-Vampire Killing Kits (Patent Pending).
Trilby Tuesday Nov 18 06:19 PM
Hi, thx1134. BTW, weird handle.

I saw one like this on an antiques show a couple of years ago. I was disappointed it fetched such a low price and figured they were shortsighted not to have put it to international auction (with a specific eye to America). You're more indulgent of both history and horror than we are.
thx1134 Tuesday Nov 18 06:31 PM
Actually a early proof of concept model from the mid '50's. Lots of abnormalities and quirks. As they say in Arkansas .. it works but this dog don't hunt.
Sundae Tuesday Nov 18 07:13 PM
Eh? If that is response to my post, all I am explaining is why so many were destroyed, therefore why those left are more valuable.

Love the vampire hunting kit, don't care if it's a good fake, don't have 15 grand to spend on it

I thought 3 silver bullets were for disposing of werewolves. Is this an all-purpose, Swiss army kit?

I'm kind of fond of the titbit.
Clodfobble Wednesday Nov 19 07:14 PM
It turns out that the reason silver developed a reputation for supernatural qualities was that--several hundred years ago, at least--it didn't tarnish. The primary tarnishing agent of silver is sulphur, and before the Industrial Revolution, there wasn't enough of it in the air to noticeably tarnish anything made of silver. Nowadays, of course, there's plenty in the air. But beyond that, most organic poisons contain a relatively significant amount of sulphur, so back then one would use a silver knife or bowl to test food and drink for poison, since it would quickly tarnish the utensil.

I bought one of these on eBay, 'course it was a Chinese knock-off...but hey, it still worked as advertised on my mother-in-law. Gave 'garlicbreath666' very positive feedback!

Here's a fake one.
Tawny Wednesday Feb 18 04:29 AM
That isn't a vampire killing kit, it's Criss Angel's makeup case.

You can tell the werewolf dissection case is false.

Any werewolf that has any class at all has a regular pedicurist.
