My coworker jumped onto my Maggard order to buy one of their DEs  (no soap + brush ... yet?)
I told him I'd give him some blades to get started, I'm thinking 1 or 2 of everything I have. That is only four brands though:

Astra SP
Personna Reds
Gillette Platinum
Rapira Platinum Lux

Thoughts on what popular ones I'm missing for a potential Tryablade order?

Have you made the purchase at maggards? Might want see their blade sampler. Can always share between the 2 of you .

Tryablade has their top 10 blades so that's a start.

Devilance, yeah the order was placed on Friday and arrives on tomorrow. I figured I would give him the blades I mentioned and then link him to Tryablade or back to Maggards if he likes DE shaving. But if there were some other "typical" ones to mention by name, I will.

The Gillette Platinum you are giving him is definitely an excellent choice to try out.  If you are buying from Maggards, the Rapira Swedish Supersteel is available there, and worth trying instead of/in addition to the Platinum Lux.  

And, of course, KAI.

How his first shave ? I would wait until he tried shaving with the 4 blades you tried and gauge his interest after that.

But since you already purchased off Maggards and probably might not be buying anything from them soon. I would suggest buying from tryablade. Look at their TOP 10 sampler to give you an idea. Probably see which of the 4 he likes best or at least a ranking of them. That way maybe someone can chime in with similar blade.

An example, I love Voskhod but my Friend think it's crap...
