Not Tuck blades, Perfecta blades and Blue holders. Blades from Perfecta held an edge better. I changed out my new Bauer Tuck for those until there was no supply. The company seemed more famous after they went out of business. They made them in Black as well. Not sure if that was because the Great One went to LA. Rumor had it back in the day that Oilers and then LA bought up all Perfecta blades and holders of a certain size from anywhere in the world.
