HI Everybody-

I've been using Merkur blades or grocery store cheapos since I got my DE razor for Christmas I've been considering ordering one of the sampler pack sort of deals off of Amazon. The sort of things that come with a set each of 10 or so different brands. 

Should I go down this route, in order to sample a variety of blades? It's cheaper than buying an individual pack of numerous brands. Has anyone else tried this? Are they generally good quality blades, or a good representation of each brand?

Thanks!

I've tried sampler packs before and have been disappointed with most of the blades in them. I have a Edwin Jagger and a 1950's Gillette and by far the best blade I've found are Feathers. I have a very tough beard and they are so sharp that they cut without any pull or drag. Just bear in mind that because they are so sharp that you can easily nick yourself if you lose your concentration and get slack in your technique.
