Dakine Edge Tool

Hey all, new here. Just got into tuning and picked up a dakine mini edge tool for my park pickle. My local shop does a terrible job so i decided to do it myself. The one thing i can't figure out is what side of the file do you use for general sharpening. One side has ////// while the other has a cross rough pattern. Which should i use?
Another question, I'm doing park but like a little more grip (east coast). How far should i detune my edges? 1.5 base and 88 side (if that matters)
Thanks In advance!

The slashed side will cut better if your trying to get some big burs and crap off.
I'm not too sure what angles really do what I just use the 90 for everything and it works fine.

Is this tool for only the side edge or both the base and side?

Just the side, you don't want to be taking a file to the base edge. You can gummy/diamond stone the base edge, but you can file the side edge only (and not a lot).
