    Don't know anything about Cheetos.

    Strop 50-55 each fabric and leather. 20 or so each afterwards. That's just to make sure everything is dry

    I strop before I shave and then I strop a few laps to make sure it's dry. If i have to strop during shaving i get a different razor and touch up or re-hone that blade.

    45 on linen and about 100 on soft leather gives me the edge I like. If I'm away from home for months on end I'll do about 70 on hard leather every other day.
    I love the smell of shaving cream in the morning!
