You can never be too careful, there’s no saying when a crazy vampire will just jump out of the shadows looking for blood. The solution of course is to keep a vampire killing kit at hand. Made out of ivory, the kit was constructed in the early 19th century.
It includes “an ornate ivory-mounted Christian cross integrating a steel, spring-loaded, .41 caliber single-shot percussion pistol, the center mounted with an ebony shield surmounted with a 8-pointed crown, the tips made from tiny semi-precious red stones. A ruby red five-pointed star adorns the center. The vampire pistol is contained in an ivory case, together with steel dagger blade which attaches to the end of the cross, an ivory cleaning rod, ivory powder bottle, and cap and ball supply” The kit is up for auction.
