For Those That Hunt the Night

The Green Dragon Workshop brings us this pristine Blomberg-style vampire killing kit. I think this is the first time I've seen a kit with a purpose-built case, and the craftsmanship of the hand jointed woodwork is impeccable. My one quibble, as usual, is the lack of restraints for the contents.

Except for the restraints, this is awesome. It look like you could use it in a movie.

The basic design is decent enough. Just needs restraints as you guys said, and a little dirtying up.

I would also add that the phillips screws kill the immersion for me. They weren't around until the 1930s IIRC.

Looks fantastic!
Similar to the comments about the restraints; I wonder how the hunter is intended to carry the kit? It looks like the two handles on the side require the kit to be carried flat with both arms. That seems a bit impractical for a vampire hunter, unless this kit is simply the "at home" storage container and various articles would be removed and placed in a more portable satchel as needed for a specific hunt. Or maybe the hunter has a couple of porters that each carry one side of the kit and when he yells "Stake!" or "Cross!" they just hand him what he needs.
