My preference is to use a small hand-held belt sander mounted upside down and provided with a simple tool rest. Its advantage is that it gives bevels that are dead flat as opposed to the concave bevels that come from a grinder. Here's a link:
I use a 180 grit belt. Once the skew is shaped - given the preferred included angle - simply touching up the edge with a diamond hone is all that's required. Taking a skew back to the sander is seldom needed.
