>25 degrees! Wow! That's a really shallow angle; it translates to grinding the edge back to about 2 1/3 times the thickness of the skew. So it's truly shallow. That is why you may be having some trouble controlling it. It probably will cut difficult woods better and need frequent sharpening, I would imagine.

Bill Grumbine demonstrated last night at our club (Montgomery County Woodturners ) in Bethesda, Maryland) , showing us some great skew chisel basics. He likes to turn spindle work at about 3000 rpm. And I thought 1800 was fast!
