I used that idea back over 25 years ago, but not with a skew. Mine was for hollowing. It had a pressure bar just over a blade mounted in the end of a tube, with a spur sticking out further on the end to sever the grain. I had a shop vac sucking the ribbon down the tube. I could shove it in hard without worry about snagging, taking about 5/8" W x 1/16" thick.

It worked great, but since I didn't have the machining skills to make the knife and spur adjustable, they were brazed on, so sharpening was a pain.
