Default which multi-angle base/side bevel file guide ... for edge maintenance?

I already do my own wax jobs, but am now looking to maintain my own edges. However, I do not own any of that equipment yet. My board still has the factory base/side bevels (0 and 0, I think), so I need stuff that not only can sharpen but also change the bevel ankles.

So which multi-angle tool kit would be best for my needs...the one with 3 or 5 diamond stones listed below? I'll add gummy and Arkansas stones to my order, and make my own water:alcohol mix.

Base-Side Bevel File Guide SKS Multi Tool + 3 DMT diamond stones w/ file

versus

Base-Side Bevel File Guide SKS Multi Tool + 5 DMT diamond stones with file

Thanks!

The set with 3 should be sufficient.

However, a word of caution; once you start changing your base bevel and side edge angle, you aren't going to be able to change it back to a 0/0. Once the edge is gone, it is pretty much gone for good.

Do you know if these types of tuning tools ever go on sale (like end-of-season)? Thanks

I'll be honest: I've been keeping an eye on these for like a year or two now, and they don't really go on sale. Tognar is where I go for this stuff, and they tend to keep prices as the stuff is the same every year.

Yea the 3 will be fine...I wish I had seen this on their site a couple of months ago...I guess my search wasn't correct. I got a base bevel tool only, I would have rather have had one of these.
