I'm relatively new to shaving with a safety razor and Col. Conk's products are showing up quite frequently.

Personally, I own a razor and brush stand holder of this brand(which despite the brushes I own never fitting it above the bristles is quite nice looking and matches my Merkur 23c).

But I was curious, who is/was Col. Ichabod Conk?

There is a picture of the man on the shaving soaps so I assume he was a real man who maybe started a line of shaving products personally.

And maybe a google search would easily answer this question but i figured i have a badger and blade account and i'm interested in learning(maybe others are too), does any members of this site know who was the man and/or why does he have shaving products named after him.

Thanks in advance.

http://wiki.badgerandblade.com/index.php/Col._Ichabod_Conk

And, from coolshaving.com:

"There REALLY was a Colonel Ichabod Conk. In 1866, soon after the Civil War made him a pauper, Colonel Ichabod Conk traveled to Albuquerque, New Mexico. After living there a short time, Col. Conk began to date a woman who owned several barber and hair cutting salons for both men and women. She shaved men's faces daily, and after Col. Conk married her, he became proficient in the barbering profession, helping his wife with her customers, and keeping her books. Suddenly, Col. Conk had a startlingly magnificent idea -- why couldn't he package the products they were using every day, and sell them across the nation?

Colonel Ichabod Conk Shaving Products was born. Col. Conk became a wealthy man for that time and age, and continued the business until his death in 1898. At that time, his business simply ceased to exist. The current ownership discovered his legacy, and decided to continue the legend, in today's marketplace. Conk - a legend of yesteryear, a great reality today. Unique quality, unique product -- created to restore joy to shaving."

Thanks.

Great info on the current company from the wiki.

"The original company ceased business after Conk's death in 1898. The current company does not manufacture its own products, and merely sells rebranded products."

Although that quote makes me care less about the current products since it seems to say they sell others peoples products under their brand.

And also it tells me Col Ichabod was just some guy who married into a family that owned some barber shops and his wife named some stuff after him. And from that the name just stuck around so is now used to sell other peoples products marketed under his name(however those products could probably be obtained for the same quality under different names if someone looked).

So, Col. Ichabod Crane is no one really in summation? He's just a guy that some company exploits his name despite he himself having no great connection to shaving history at all.

very disappointing to hear.

Gillette is using the name of arguably the most important person in shaving history and look at what that got us.

So how is that different form a million and one other products where they have bought a defunct name and sell products hoping you will respond to the history of that name. That's very common in the watch business.

By the way the Conk Co is located about 20 miles south of Albuquerque in a small town called Los Lunas. It's run from someone's house.

Except for all the stuff about barbering, marriage and success, it's like John Wayne's character in "The Searchers" was based on Col. Conk!

My guess was always somebody like VDH; the pucks are identical in shape and packaging - which wouldn't mean much, save for the fact that you don't see any other soaps packaged like VDH and Conk.

So the legend isn't exactly inspiring... they still make some good, cheap stuff.

03-21-2010, 01:15 PM
IIRC, a representative of Van Der Hagen has said that they do indeed make the soap for Col Conk. It would seem that Ichabod Conk himself basically became a travelling salesman selling shaving goods. I'm not sure if Colonel Conk's company ever manufactured their own products.

If anyone is interested, here is the company's official website (http://www.colconkproducts.com/).

I don't think the current company is exploiting the Conk name since the original company ceased business in 1898. I imagine very few, if any, people remembered the Conk name when the current company started in 1980.

col. conk is most famous for losing a fist fight in the local town square against col. sanders..... apparently the fight resulted from the 2 men hurling insults at each other... the first blow was thrown when conk called sanders a "chicken plucker"...

I always thought that Col. Conk fought Col. Sanders at the battle of Dirty Bird.
I heard Sanders won.

Btw, one of the first soaps I used was Conk. Keep looking, there are better soaps out there.

For every product we talk about there are people who think it is overrated, and some that think it is underrated. So the fact that some think it might be overrated really says nothing about the product.

VDH costs less than $2 a puck, (and is locally available for much of the US) you owe it to yourself to try it out, and form your own opinion.

My goodness! Did you get up on the wrong side of the bed this morning? :wink2: He wasn't 'just' some guy who married into a family that owned barber shops ... he was an entrepreneur broken by the war, who got a business idea to provide quality products people needed and enjoyed using and made his fortune a second time. Many people make great products but are not great at marketing, there is no shame in separating the manufacturing of a product from its distribution, it is a time-honored business function, and often the only way people who make quality products ever capitalize on it.

Col. Ichabod Conk is really a nobody? I disagree. We don't know much about him, but if he was a colonel in the Civil War he was likely a capable military man, although we know nothing of his exploits. I think his story is a classic of old-fashioned American 'pull yourself up by your bootstraps' success. And as for the company using his name and image for marketing ... so what? Many folks think highly of their soaps. Do you avoid buying Aunt Jemima pancake syrup because she 'really was a nobody...very disappointing'?

Classic glass half empty, half full clash of viewpoints, I guess. But I don't get your disappointment.

Actually while I did in fact watch Captain Kangaroo on TV, I am not entirely certain that he was a real captain, or that his name was even Kangaroo. I believe it may have been a stage name. Captain Crunch, OTOH, was AFAIK just a fictitious cartoon character. No more real than Smedly or the Crunchberry Beast. The Captain of Captain and Tennille fame was not very captainly and I doubt he ever held a Master's License, or held any rank of Captain in the military or any police force. Three out of three, bogus captains in varying degrees of bogusity.

I always had my doubts about Col. Ichabod Conk, though I held my peace until now. The name just doesn't have the ring of sincerity to it. Now we won't be casting aspersions at Col. Harlan Sanders, oh no. Yes, I know he was only a mule handler in the Army, but he was granted a commission as a Kentucky Colonel, and such things are taken quite seriously in Kentucky. Plus, KFC is almost as good as Popeye's. But most of these captains and colonels and stuff are imposters.

I started out with Col. Conk soap and thought it was okay... after trying Proraso I was completely blown away and will never touch my Col. Conk soaps again. I would PIF the two pucks that I have left but I doubt that anybody here would want them.

My brush is Col. Conk as well, but it's just a re-branded Vulfix. It's a great beginner brush but my RAD has already set in after less than a month and I have my eye on a Wee Scot.

As someone else mentioned, they also sell Dovo Best Quality razors with the Col. Conk name stamped on them.

Seems like they pretty much just offer re-branded entry level gear for beginners and people that don't know any better. I certainly wouldn't know any better if I hadn't found this forum.

KFC is marginally better but there are plenty of other choices out there.

And, from coolshaving.com:

"There REALLY was a Colonel Ichabod Conk. In 1866, soon after the Civil War made him a pauper, Colonel Ichabod Conk traveled to Albuquerque, New Mexico. After living there a short time, Col. Conk began to date a woman who owned several barber and hair cutting salons for both men and women. She shaved men's faces daily, and after Col. Conk married her, he became proficient in the barbering profession, helping his wife with her customers, and keeping her books. Suddenly, Col. Conk had a startlingly magnificent idea -- why couldn't he package the products they were using every day, and sell them across the nation?

Colonel Ichabod Conk Shaving Products was born. Col. Conk became a wealthy man for that time and age, and continued the business until his death in 1898. At that time, his business simply ceased to exist. The current ownership discovered his legacy, and decided to continue the legend, in today's marketplace. Conk - a legend of yesteryear, a great reality today. Unique quality, unique product -- created to restore joy to shaving."

Fair enough, but it sounds like Mrs. Conk deserves a bit more credit than the name of the firm, then or now, suggests.

col. conk is most famous for losing a fist fight in the local town square against col. sanders..... apparently the fight resulted from the 2 men hurling insults at each other... the first blow was thrown when conk called sanders a "chicken plucker"...

Man, I always heard that blows began after Col. Conk yelled "What's the matter Col. Sanders? CHICKEN?"

Popeye's is better than KFC? Seriously, when Katrina hit how long were you held under water?:sad::sad::sad: ............JR

It's a proven fact that Popeye's is better than KFC. Proven by science, facts, and the laws of thermydygreasetraps. Better crust, better chickens, better flavor, and the founder was known to throw punches in nice restaurants (http://www.nola.com/opinions/index.ssf/2011/12/al_copeland-robert_guidry_figh.html) at people he was feuding with, on occasion. Yeah, Popeye's packs a punch.
