CODY, WY, UNITED STATES, June 4, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Knives from renowned custom makers including Ed Fowler, Lucas Burnley, Tony Bose, Philip Booth, Mathew Lerch, Richard Rogers, Brian Tighe, Tom Mayo, Ken Onion, and Joe Caswell will be on live auction at the American Knife & Tool Institute’s (AKTI) fundraiser on Friday evening, June 7th in Atlanta, Georgia. Individuals who otherwise would never have the opportunity to own a knife by these makers due to their high demand will have a chance to bid on a donated knife.

Funds raised by the live and silent auctions will support the American Knife & Tool Institute’s legislative efforts. This year’s “Free to Carry” event will be auctioneered by the ever-entertaining Tommy Clark of Blue Ridge Knives, who has again graciously volunteered his time to conduct the live auction.

“The American Knife & Tool Institute diligently works with state and federal legislators to clarify and remove knife laws, allowing individuals to be ‘Free to Carry’ the knife of their choice,” said CJ Buck, CEO of Buck Knives and AKTI President. “We sincerely thank these makers who generously donate of their talent to help us continue our initiatives which benefit everyone in the knife industry and all knife users.”

Unique custom knives will be live auctioned. Fans of Tony Bose will have an opportunity to bid on a Bullnose Trapper with a 3.71” Spey blade and a 3.63” drop point blade. It includes all the features Tony is famous for including a pinned stainless arrowhead shield, glazed finish stainless pocket bolster, lanyard tube and stainless liners milled for improved blade fall. Tony’s work attracts enthusiasts from around the world who often wait years for their knives to be completed to his satisfaction.

What happens when you cross art and mechanics? You get something that looks like Matthew Lerch, a knifemaker trained as a jeweler/watchmaker. Matthew has donated a Scamp which features a 3.6” black DLC coated CPM blade and zirconium handle which will be in high demand.

“These are just two of the excellent knives that a fan of custom makers will have a unique opportunity to own,” said Mark Schreiber, President of CRKT and chair of the event. “We are honored that these high-demand makers, some of who do not take orders any more, value AKTI’s approach and work to ensure our businesses thrive and knife owners can have the freedom to choose the knife they want.”

Buck Knives, Benchmade, Sport Hansa, Willey Knives, Spyderco, Gerber, Utica Cutlery Company, Scheel’s, Chris Reeve Knives, Browning, Camillus Knives, Leatherman, Stone River Gear, Swiss Army Knives, plus Boker USA, CRKT, Fox Knives, SOG Knives & Tools, The Evans Group and WE Knife all donated knives or items that will be on silent auctions.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 3, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Zack Norman, actor and producer of “Chief Zabu,” has been chosen by the “Best of Los Angeles Award” community as one of L.A.’s 100 most fascinating people, according to Aurora DeRose, award coordinator for the “Best of Los Angeles Award” community.

“With all of Zack Norman’s incredible achievements in the field of entertainment, it’s easy to see why he has earned a place on L.A.’s 100 Most Fascinating People list” said DeRose.

The “Best of Los Angeles Award” community was formed four years ago and consists of over 5,300 professional members living and working in Southern California. It celebrates the best people, places and things in Los Angeles with a slogan “No Ads. No B.S. Only the Best.”

“The mission of the community is to celebrate the best of Los Angeles, and allow its community members to connect with other members who share the highest standards of quality and integrity,” expresses DeRose. "We're honored to include talented actor and producer Zack Norman into our L.A.’s 100 Most Fascinating List."

Zack Norman is an actor, producer, writer, comedian, musician, film financier, painter, art collector and real estate developer. Born in Boston and raised in nearby Revere, Massachusetts, he is best known for his role as Ira in 20th Century Fox's Romancing the Stone and as Kaz Naiman in Paramount Classics' Festival in Cannes. He has also co-starred in films such as Ragtime, Cadillac Man, and Chief Zabu, which he also co-wrote, co-produced and co-directed.

Norman began performing as a stand-up comedian in strip joints and nightclubs while producing his first Off-Broadway play, the New York premiere of John Arden's Live Like Pigs, which opened on June 7, 1965. In 1966 he left for Europe to work the U.S. Army Base Circuit operating out of Frankfurt, Germany, playing army clubs throughout Western Europe.

On June 7, 1967, Norman opened at the Playboy Club in London, England, where Variety wrote he was "hysterical… one of the funniest guys ever to cross these shores". Soon, he was headlining in every Playboy Club on their 18-venue circuit, as well as appearing in hotels and nightclubs such as The Flamingo in Las Vegas and New York's Copacabana with The Temptations. Norman made his debut on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson on April 28, 1969. As a stage actor, he starred in more than 20 plays. His performance in the title role of Bertolt Brecht's The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui at the Stamford Center for the Arts in Stamford, Connecticut (1980) was critically acclaimed.

In 2006, Variety's Elizabeth Guider wrote of Norman: "There are people through the decades who become regular fixtures in the pages of Variety – everyone from Al Jolson to Jimmy Durante to Michael Ovitz to Harvey Weinstein. But no one's presence has been as constant as that of Zack Norman." The reason for this, she wrote, is that in the 1980s he regularly bought ads promoting himself and “Chief Zabu” on page 6 of the newspaper.

I love creating community around self care. The Old Mill District is the perfect place to do this, as there are so many unique offerings, collaborations and fun events in this area.”

— Tara Mortenson

BEND, OR, USA, June 3, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Two businesses in the Old Mill District are under new ownership: Sweet Tooth Candy Shoppe, which originally opened in the shopping district in 2012; and Radiant Day Spa, located in the previous Bend Day Spa space.

Yoga instructor and self-care advocate Tara Mortenson is the new owner of Radiant Day Spa, located at 520 SW Powerhouse Dr, Suite 627. She’s taken her love of building community and her decades of working in the business world to create a place that combines her passions and entrepreneurial spirit. In a remodeled space with a light and modern aesthetic, Radiant Day Spa will offer massage, facials, lash lifting and tinting, waxing and retail products. Tara and her practitioners focus on clean ingredients, results-driven products and holistic treatments to create the perfect experience for each individual.

Mortenson said, “I love creating community around self care. The Old Mill District is the perfect place to do this, as there are so many unique offerings, collaborations and fun events in this area. I’m looking forward to participating in all the activities. Plus, you can't beat the view of the mountains and river from our lounge!” Radiant Day Spa is planning to open in June.

Sweet Tooth Candy Shoppe, 450 SW Powerhouse Dr, Suite 402, is now owned and operated by new owner Alan Radoulovitch, who moved to Bend with his wife Melissa, an Oregon native, last year. He was ready to leave his decades-long career in the financial sector behind and get out from behind a desk. He loved the concept of the store, which offers a large variety of candy, including more than 400 bulk candy choices all the way to specialty international candy and gift items – in a fun, whimsical environment. He’s added some new processes on the operational side, as well as new products that have been requested by customers.

Radoulovitch said, “I love that the shop is located in the Old Mill District, where we have a chance to meet great people who come in to see us. Between the shops and restaurants, concerts and events at Les Schwab Amphitheater and recreational events on the Deschutes River, there's something for everyone here. We’re excited for the future of Sweet Tooth!”

Early Magic: The Gathering cards, the complete Alpha set, with many BGS-graded examples, to be sold as one lot.

Early Magic: The Gathering cards, the complete Beta set, with many BGS-graded examples, to be sold as one lot.

1880s-era Allen and Ginter non-sports card collection with more than 600 pieces, including cards, boxes and more.

1890s Bi-Borax French advertising poster by F. Poulbot.

Included are complete Alpha, Beta and Arabian Nights sets, with many BGS-graded examples. The auction will be held online and at the Lynbrook, N.Y. gallery.

It’s important to point out that the cards will be offered as sets and not broken up into multiple lots. This gives investors a rare chance to get a complete set in one fell swoop.”

— Philip Weiss

LYNBROOK, NY, UNITED STATES, June 3, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A collection of significant, early Magic: The Gathering cards, including complete Alpha, Beta and Arabian Nights sets, with many BGS-graded examples in each, are the expected centerpiece lots in an auction planned for Wednesday, June 26th, at 10 am Eastern, by Weiss Auctions, online and in the firm’s roomy gallery located at 74 Merrick Road in Lynbrook.

Magic: The Gathering cards are hugely popular and highly sought after by collectors. A few graded standout cards include Alpha Black Lotus, 8.5; Alpha Mox Pearl, 9.5; Beta Time Vault, 10.0; Beta Black Lotus, 9.0; and Beta Earthquake, 9.5, among many others graded at 9.0 and 9.5.

Magic: The Gathering cards were first released 1993. The initial sets were the limited Alpha and Beta sets of cards, before the Unlimited format was introduced. The first expansion, Arabian Nights, was released in December 1993 just after the Limited Editions were printed and sold out.

“The Black Lotus is one of the most sought-after cards for Magic collectors,” said Philip Weiss of Weiss Auctions. “Its ability to be played for free and then tapped in order to gain three mana of any one color made it powerful and popular, and it was almost immediately banned from official play. These three sets combined could bring in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.”

Mr. Weiss added, “It’s important to point out that the cards will be offered as sets and not broken up into multiple lots. This gives investors a rare chance to get a complete set in one fell swoop.”

In addition to live bidding in the gallery, there will also be online bidding available, via the two platforms Proxibid.com and Invaluable.com. Telephone and absentee bids will also be accepted.

The auction will also feature a fine selection of linen-backed posters, to include a scarce Fairy Sisters poster; an 1880s Allen and Ginter non-sports card collection with more than 600 pieces, including cards, boxes and more; signed lithographs with a wide assortment of important artists featured; rare and out-of-print books; Hollywood photographs and American Bandstand material.

Also offered will be military medals and uniforms; Continental Congress and other historical autographs; antique advertising, including coffee tins from the collection of Barbara and Lowell Schindler; fountain pens and more. The non-sports cards include The Three Stooges, Batman, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, The Addams Family, Beatles, Monster Greetings and others.

Posters expected to do well include a 1920s Royal Northern Hospital poster by W. Lambert; a 1959 Egypt travel poster saying “Enjoy Your Holiday”; a 1950s Mexico Pan American Airlines travel poster by E. McKnight Kauffer; an 1890s Bi-Borax French advertising poster rendered by F. Poulbot; and an 1893 French “Amaranthe Bitter” advertising poster, printed by C.H. Levy.

Other posters will include a 1900s “Abiti Per Bambini” Italian advertising poster and a 1920s “Fair of Antique Dealers” French poster by A. Palland. The war medals category will feature an ID’d British Crimean War medal for George Dungate, 10th Hussars; and an ID’d British Waterloo medal for Henry Gronemann, 5th Line Battalion K.G.L.; plus other fine examples.

Weiss Auctions’ next big event is slated for Wednesday, July 24th, also in the Lynbrook gallery, featuring toys, trains, diecast, TV and Western toys, dolls and more. The sale will be highlighted by Part 3 of the Joseph P. Cutrofello collection of toy trains, with more of his boxed Lionel set collection (around 40 boxed sets), his Lionel HO collection and pre-war O and Standard Gauge.

The auction will also feature Part 2 of an incredible 1950s and ‘60s-era TV, Western and movie toy collection, all mint-in-the-box pieces, including gun and holster sets, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy, Aurora model kits, Howdy Doody and more; plus tons of diecast vehicles, including boxed Matchbox, Corgi, Dinky and Tootsietoy.
