Edge noob here... So how often should I sharpen my base edges?

I have an Atomic Hatchet and it came from the factory with a 2.5 degree bevel. So does that mean that it came with a 2.5 degree base bevel and 0 degree side bevel?

Thanks

Can someone recommend a good file guide for tuning edges?

Addicted to racing! What kind of bike have you got?
- Just go buy some ONE BALL JAY all temp online.
- Then rub it on nice and hard for about 5 minutes
- Use a blow dryer to heat it up. You only need to melt the wax.
- Do not worry about heating the board.
-Now scrape!
- Go ride

I saw this one at a shop and almost bought it, except it was priced at $49.00. Here it's cheaper - SnowShack FK Tools Multi-tuner Base & Side Edge Beveler

It does side and base edge.

but if you have the money there is always svst tools or the beast.

Don't have a bike. Just cars. Thanks for the info on the wax.
