What tools does a vampire hunter need?

According to legend, there are only three ways to kill a vampire:
- Beheading, and burial with the severed head placed below the vampires hip. Stuffing the head with garlic, and burying the body in consecrated ground helps.
- Exposure to full sunlight, and immolation.
- Stake through the heart, and burial with the stake still in place.
So, a very sharp machete, or broad bladed ax, ready access to sunlight, and wooden stakes and a reliable delivery system.
Additional legendary elements could provide help. Some legend tells that vampires tend to be a bit obsessive compulsive, so a bag of course grain salt, rice, or beans could be helpful. Spilled, vampires are compelled to count the grains. Holy water and a delivery device such as a Super Soaker might be beneficial. Garlic and/or tonic water with quinine might help as well.
