The premier builder of early American primitive style Vampire Killing Kits has created a truly one of a kind, 18th Century style kit. This VKK exceeds all possible expectations of realism and era-appropriate contents for its price range.

Original Vampire Killing - 1777 Philadelphia with Flintlock & Cross Stakes

Imagine you are a Lieutenant during the Revolutionary war. General George Washington, from his post in Philadelphia, has given you the mission of destroying a beast which has been feeding on soldiers during the night, draining them of their blood and souls. Although some believe this to be an animal or perhaps even The Jersey Devil, Washington knows what this evil is - A Vampyre, recently brought from Transylvania on a sailing ship.

Washington commissions the local arms smith to create a case of weapons with which to hunt and destroy the dreaded beast. Since there is no standard for such a task, the arms smith includes everything he can think of necessary to find and kill a legendary Vampyre.

He decides to include:

• European style 18th century carrying trunk with iron padlock
• Late 18th Century Flintlock Pistol (non-firing replica) with accoutrements:
Tin of black powder
Six silver shot balls (Silver will stop the vampire but not kill it) in a leather satchel
Wadding paper

• Small silver dagger (can be used to remove the vampire’s heart once staked)
• One wooden box for containing fresh garlic cloves
• One wooden box containing a length of silver chain
• Three wooden stakes made in the shape of the Cross, bound with leather
• Three black candles for making your way through dark crypts and graveyards
• Flint and Steel, with a tin of kindling, for creating fire
• One slow match
• Six iron nails to secure the vampire within its coffin
• One bottle of holy water
• One bottle of rock salt (used to damage the vampire’s lair, and also, the legend states that any grains placed before the vampire will stop it in its tracks as it must count each grain before proceeding)
• One Holy Bible
• One brass spyglass
• One Holy Rosary, with black cross-stake pendant to match.
• One leaflet, Exorcism Rite, to be spoken to cast the vampire to hell. Printed on actual, authentic-era paper made on the antique paper machine at the Franklin Institute (Philadelphia) in 1976.
• Two maps, of Transylvania and Romania
• One map of Philadelphia, 1777 (Printed on authentic paper)
• One Fifty-Dollar Continental Congress Currency Note, Philadelphia, 1787 (Printed on authentic paper)
• One bronze City of Philadelphia seal
• One leaflet, Characteristics of the Vampire (added in the late 19th century)

General Washington pays the arms smith in Continental Currency, and hands the kit over to you with the direction to find and kill the Vampyre at any cost. He dispatches you with these words: "Good luck, God speed, and tell no one of your mission."

This is one of the finest, museum-quality replica kits available on the market today. Every piece has been meticulously designed or aged to look like it has been used repeatedly during the last two centuries. The non-firing pistol looks and feels authentic; the hammer can be cocked and the trigger will release it. The cross-stakes are hand hewn and bound with CRYSTOBAL's trademark leather X.

The Exorcism Prayer and map of Philadelphia are printed on era-correct cotton paper, paper that was created on the Paper Making Machine located at The Franklin Institute in 1976. The flint and steel are real. The cross-stakes and dagger are sharp and the spyglass is real. The bible is an actual antique; age is unknown but it is realistic for the era.

Replica notes: The gun is 100% non-firing. The "gunpowder" is not real gunpowder and is not flammable. To keep costs down, the chain, balls and dagger are not sterling silver but are chrome or steel. The slowmatch is non-igniting.

CRYSTOBAL's kits have been hailed as the highest quality and most creative kits on the market. CRYSTOBAL started the Vampire Killing Kit craze many years ago when he sold his first kit online. Prior to that, CRYSTOBAL created these kits for stage, film and private collectors. He is credited with inventing this style of primitive Vampire Killing Kit. Accept no imitations.

This kit is very heavy and is intended for display purposes only. However, each piece is removable to add to your enjoyment. Please forward any questions you may have before purchasing. NOTE: This kit is also being offered in a retail location. Listing subject to end at any time.
