Col Conk Bay Rum Traditional Shave Soap, 2oz

8 reviews
We currently have 12 in stock.

Our old school blend of tropical bay tree leaves and Jamaican rum is the stuff of legend: it's one of the original scents of wet shaving. And Bay Rum Shave Soap is one of the first products we introduced to honor our namesake, Colonel Ichabod Conk.

The Bay Rum scent accompanies a rich, thick lather that promotes that smooth, sure glide while you're shaving. Added avocado and vitamin-e help nourish the skin.

It's just the kind of old school inspiration you need some days!

2oz round soap puck in a cardboard box.

You get what you pay for. In my opinion, Col Conk doesn't produce a quality Bay Rum scent (or shave soap for that matter). I wouldn't recommend it. I'm not saying your only other option is purchasing an expensive "top shelf" soap. But spending just a few more dollars on a quality artisan soap will make a world of difference.


Customer review

Good strong lather, not a thirsty soap. The scent left a lot to be desired, and the slickness was far below other soaps sold here. However, very good price and a good lather makes for a great value. I had the protection I needed.


Customer review

It is better than the Colgate and Williams soaps I started out with 44 years ago. However, this is a case where you get what you pay for. The lather is on the thin side. Fairly slick. Not much scent. Let's give it a solid C+ grade.


Customer review

For the price, this soap performs well, but there are other products available that perform better for only a bit more. The scent is pleasant, but not like most other Bay Rum's out there. This smells sweeter and does not smell too strong on the brush or face. Lather is adequate and is much preferred with soft water or use with distilled water. At home I have hard water, so it takes some extra prep and work to get a decent lather going. Bottom line is if you're in a pinch and need a cheap shave soap that works, this absolutely fits the bill, but if you can afford a few more dollars, there are better performers out there.


Customer review

This product is NOT cheap. It may be inexpensive, but for the cost its easy to whip you get worlds of lather, good lubrication, and a pleasant scent. Highly recommended for a go to soap .
