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.
