I also have this soap and it certainly gets the job done. It's not elegant but it's seems like a very good budget soap in the sense that it smells clean, lathers very well, and doesn't leave the skin feeling dry or uncomfortable. This is the only Danish-produced shaving soap which I'm familiar with unless there are others which are either artisan-made or commercial. I have two of them which a fellow in Denmark sent me. I like this one enough to keep it in my rotation.
