Blades Samples

Since I've been haphazardly trying razors and blades for my first 5 months of DE shaving, I've yet to decide upon my favorite blade(s). I need more samplers to narrow my selection. I also don't have enough current blades to make a blade exchange. So, instead of shopping multiple stores, is there any one place (or two) I can buy samples of the following blades?

Gillette Silver Blue
Gillette 7:00 Black
Gillette 7:00 Yellow
Gillette 7:00 Green (I'd like to try both the Russian and Indian versions)
Polisilver SI
Rapira - not sure which type; I've just read a little about them
Connaught Shaving has a Gillette sample pack, comprised of

Astra Superior Platinum
Gillette 7 o’clock Sharp Edge (yellow) (RUS)
Gillette 7 o’clock Super Stainless (green) (RUS)
Gillette NACET Stainless
Gillette Silver Blue Stainless (RUS)
Gillette Super Thin Platinum (CHN)
Gillette Super Thin Stainless (CHN)
POLSILVER Super Iridium (RUS)
maggardrazors.com allows you to make your own sampler packs. Not sure if they have all the ones you listed, but might be a good place to try.

Thank you for posting this, as I've wondered where I can find Voskhod blades. Hearing about how favored they are, I was wondering if anyone would mind comparing them to Gillette Silver Blue or Gillette 7 o'clock Blacks. Are they as smooth or as sharp in your opinion? Thank you, and Happy New Year!
