check the builder website or give them a call. what kind of board, someone here may know (probably will).

also note that you don't have to use the builder setup, you may want to add more or less, depending on your preferences.

more degrees = more edge hold, but will catch edges more - this is an oversimplification, the real answer is below.

Tuning - The Carver's Almanac

this article is very comprehensive.

lots of youtube videos on how to sharpen.

personally I recommend a proper metal file guide as opposed to those plastic ones that hold a little tiny square piece of file.
