Sharpening skews?

Jim K in Trappe PA
>Hi all,

How do you sharpen your skews - flat or hollow ground?

Ernie Conover says in his book to (gently) use the side of the grinding wheel to keep the bevel flat.

I inherited a wolverine jig, but it will hollow grid the bevel.

Also, do you hone after grinding? If so, with what?

Thanks,
Jim
