    You could re-shape that skew to be a bowl scraper with some time on a coarse grinding wheel to hog off a bit of metal...

    Start off with a round nose scraper and you can master the tool, then grind it into a negative rake scraper and master that tool.
    You can then decide on a quality tool with the design you like. Many turners have a right hand and left hand scraper that have reliefs that allow the tool to
    reach behind different contours in the shape of the work piece. Always good to have a couple of spare tools on hand that you can modify for specials tasks
    when you have a difficult cut to make.

    I'd go straight to a negative rake scraper--starting with a skew, you're nearly there!

    Let's not get sidetracked here. This is the Marketplace. Start a new thread on Woodturning discussions, post a picture of the skew and ask how to grind it. I have a response as soon as you do it.
