Default How much should I detune my board?

I hope I put this in the right forum. Anyway just picked up a 2014 Ultrafear FK and the edges are razor sharp. I ride 80% park and 20% the rest of the mountain. And about 70% of that park riding is on rails and jibs and shit. Anyway how much should I detune my board? By that I mean what should the edges feel like when I run my finger across it. I still want to be able to hold an edge especially since I live in the east and there's some ice up here. Also if anyone has any tips on how to make detuning easier and quicker let me know.

by feel is an inconsistant way to go about this.
get a base beveler and throw a 3 degree base bevel on there. you could probably go more but start there. remember you cant put it back on
