Vampire slaying kit

(via boingboing)

Some things in life are just to critical to even consider being without them. Consider, for instance, your need to protect your family and property from vampires. Now normally, you’d have to spend time making a custom vampire slaying kit, build a box to keep in in, and then make sure it’s going to work for the kinds of vampires you have around your neighborhood. But if you had hop ped over to ebay earlier this week, you could have picked up a pre-made vampire slaying kit from Transylvania for a starting bid of $1000 (plus $90 shipping). And when you consider the peace of mind you’d get from having a good vampire slaying kit around, that’s really not too much of an investment to make.

The box weights 20.1 lbs., length 16.8 inches, width 17 inches, height 7.9 inches;made of linden tree with maroon velvet inside, six compartments. The items enclosed in the box are as followed: one wooden hammer (6.5 inches long), four stakes 6 inches-each) — the wooden hammer has applied a small holy cross, same as the stakes; the lower side containing: prayer book, crucifix, knife and eight bottles with Pamant (holy soil), Agheazma (holy water), Mir (anointing oil), Tamaie (holy incense), Usturoi (garlic), red serum, blue serum and secret potion. We believe a romanian monk from Transylvania has created this box during the period of 1870-1890 .

The old Prayer Book is old romanian language (chirilica), 19th century-hard covers. There is a mith saying whoever is able to read from this Book, he will be able to win the fight with the dark forces, demons, vampires and other demonic creatures .

The knife is 13.1 inches long with a metal handle. It’s made of heavy metal and can be easily thrown – it will always hit the target with the sharp tip. Has a gothic theme and detailing of fangs.

More details can be found in the auction.  Never underestimate the value of a vampire slaying kit.  You never know when you’ll be attacked by a vampire, and wouldn’t you rather be prepared?  For those of us that missed the auction, we’ll just have to build our own kit.  Be sure to post directions on the web if you do, as I can’t find a guide right now.
