Vampire hunting kits get staked and it’s about time.
I’m sick and tired of these absurd “vampyre hunting killing kits” that have now become so prevalent and going for a fortune to the credulous. They are fake, fake, fake and if you buy one believing they are real, you are a in good company because recently a British museum purchased one for a lot of money. For fun Google that. The museum has now backtrack and say they knew what they were doing. In light of the explanation, I am reminded of the kid who tried a stupid trick on his bicycle and crashed: his explanation was, “I meant to do that”. Yeah.
THE TRUE ORIGIN OF THE MYTH
Author - Michael de Winter
Oddly, there is not a great lot of literature cited about using non-projectile silver weapons such as maces, daggers or swords against such creatures. The additional interesting link is that generally the silver object in question is a personal object and a sort of ad hoc lightening rod against evil. The other thing is that the silver projectile is not grounded, in the sense of being connecting a kind of grounding circuit, which would be the case with a wielded silver mace or other silver appliance.
I’d like to thank Graham1973 for this excellent listing about the general of silver in dissipating evil. I was unaware of the link and feel it is important enough to put into the body of the post so it won’t be overlooked.
