1840's Vampire Hunting Kit

Strange old Vampire Hunting kit found in London on the 12/8/2012 while I was clearing an old mansion of ruined funiture  and other stuff. while looking in the basement I found this box and asked the new owner if I could have it and he said yes, I took it home, gave the outside a good clean and to my surprise this is what I found was in the box later.

Features a solid Black Oak case with ebony cross inlaid with ivory, an Oak crucifix/stake with silver inlaid cross, Oak stake, Hammer for stake, pliers for removing a vampires teeth, various documents explaining how to use the items within the case, also has Iron nails for inserting into either the head or heart of a vampire, two knives, candle, matches, a now non working .70 cal musket, ammo for the musket, garlic in jar/bottle, Holy water bottle, gun powder bottle, small Bible, metal mirror and a crow bar for opening coffins.

Some info on Vampire Hunting :

A vampire hunter or vampire slayer is a character in folklore and fiction who specializes in finding and destroying vampires, and sometimes other supernatural creatures.
A vampire hunter is usually described as having extensive knowledge of vampires and other monstrous creatures, including their powers and weaknesses, and uses this knowledge to effectively combat them. In many works, vampire hunters are simply humans with more than average knowledge about the occult, while in others they are themselves supernatural beings, having superhuman abilities.
A well known and influential vampire hunter is Professor Abraham Van Helsing, a character in Bram Stoker's 1897 horror novel, Dracula.

In reality :

This is not really a genuine Vampire Hunting, and I did not find it either, I'm not trying to con people just entertain, many people reading this and watching my video on it either believe its a real kit, or that I think it is a real kit.
I made the kit about 6 months ago, 90% of the items were made by myself including the musket which is made from some plywood, an old lead pipe and some aluminium, I hope you still enjoyed the kit.

Please feel free to leave a comment letting me know what you think! Thanks.
