I acquired one tuck of the "vintage Nacet" blades in the white box, gave one try, liked the results and now want to know are these the same blade produced in St. Petersburg?
I have tons of blades, of different makes, produced by Gillette in St. Petersburg but never gave Nacet a try, until now.
These do not have the wax/glue spots and performed great in my ATT H2.
Thanks

It looks like they are/where manufactured in St. Petersburg. I was able to find them here  http://www.qedusa.com/nacet-nacet-platin...p-260.html 
I'm buying a few tucks

I looked it up on tryablade.com and the purple nacet is listed as stainless, not platinum.
So maybe they are different...

Oh, I remember right then. It is one of the few blades I haven't added to my collection.

I just used the purple variety in my Old Type tonight. Sharp and smooth. I like them. Will have to try them for a few more shaves before I can really recommend them, but preliminary results are good. Never tried or even seen the Platinums. If I ever do, I'll grab a tuck to see the difference.

I use the modern Purple ones and the 70's White (French) ones all the time. Excellent blades.

Underrated blade IMO -
I used these as much as any other.

The longevity wasn't as good as some, but cost was also much less.
