1800’s Vampire Hunting Kit



Supposedly these vampire hunting kits were sold to travelers to protect them from our fanged, blood sucking friends. See the full gallery at the link.
 Travelers in the 19th century would purchase ‘vampire hunting kits’ in preparation for their travels to Eastern Europe. The kits would contain a wooden stake, Bible, crucifix, pistol with lead bullets, gunpowder, garlic and glass vials that held various concoctions to ward off vampires.

This looks to be a fake. Aluminum bar stock handles riveted on the turn of the century hatchet (I have one just like it) where the wood should be, the Tandy Leather rawhide mallet with screws, just like you can buy today, the modern skinning knife with the rainbow wood (stained plywood) handle (no older than the 1980's) and other things all make this a bad forgery. Most of these items aren't even close to Victorian.
