Default Detune Rome Artifacts bronze edges?

I just picked up a new 2010 Rome Artifact. I normally would detune the tip and tail but a couple things worried me so I thought Id ask before I moved forward. I think Ive heard the bronze edges are softer than your "standard" edge. Does this affect how aggressive I should get with detuning this board? The board already comes with a -3/-3 park bevel and slightly detuned tip and tail but I like the edges rounded off pretty good. I rode it the first time the other day in some not so good conditions and it felt very catchy. What do you guys think?

i would go very very minimal on the detuning of that board as suposedly it kinda detunes itself over time, but go easy on the file cause steel > bronze and one pass of the file may take off more than you are used to on a normal board, but i duno i have never detuned an artifact so take this for what it is worth.

yeah Ill probably go lightly around the tip and tail. Anyone have first hand experience with the Artifact? Does it really detune itself?

detune it and obviously never sharpen it. My park sticks only get waxed. Overtime, it'll get nice and dull, which is what you want with the artifact anyways.
