Hello, I'm preparing to begin straight razor shaving. Few questions if you all don't mind: 1) How often should strop paste be applied to the strop? Is it in between every shave? 2) I plan on getting an Illinois strop. Do you apply the paste to the linen as well as the leather side? 3) I was planning on buying GBS 22ML single leather stop dressing. Is this all you need paste wise? Should I get something else for the linen side of the Illinois stop? 4) Should the above conditioning be done before the first use of the strop? I know it must be cleaned first with rubbing alcohol and sandpaper if not mistake. 5) I plan on buying a Dovo straight razor. Before the first use, should it be stropped? Thanks all and best.
