Sample Pack just Arrived - Which order should I try?

I just received my 110 piece sample pack with 20 different blades. I know I need to try them all to find the ones that work best for me, but I was just wondering if anyone had a suggestion to the order I should try them in?

I am using a Merkur Safety Razor. I have been using the Merkur Super Platinum blade that came with the kit. I am also using Col. Conks Amber Shave Soap. I consider myself to have rough hair on my face.

Here are the blades that I received:

Lord Classic
Lord Super
Lord Super Chrome
Lord Platinum Class
Astra Superior Stainless
Astra Superior Platinum
Shark Super Stainless
Shark Super Chrome
Big Ben Super Stainless
Treet Classic
Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Stainless
Crown Super Stainless
Trig Silver Edge Stainless
Derby Extra Super Stainless
Asco Super Stainless
Blue Bird Hi Stainless
Feather Hi Stainless
Vidyut Super-Max Stainless
Vidyut Super-Max Platinum

Last type is a unknown, just 5 wrapped blades in a bag with a symbol on them.

Thanks in advance for the advice.
Some nice ones there.
I was a huge fan of the Merkur blades but they seem to have started irritating me. What did you think of them?

The Gillettes are pretty popular.

Ultimately you should give them all a go, the most popular are the Feather (sharp), the Derby and the Astras.

Save them for last and give the others a go.
