Put a round piece of extra wood in the lathe and practice the flat scrape without having to worry about damaging a pen blank. Approach the wood VERY slowly and gently, should only be fine dust on the bevel.

Have actually done that, I never get a catch doing it with wood I don't care about, only happens when I'm just about to finish a pen .

Practice with a piece between centers and it may catch but not destroy itself.

Skew is a great tool and if you go to you tube and check out Alan Lacer demo's, who is a master of the skew ,you will see and how to get performance out of the tool.
It will be worth your time.

Cheers

This post kinda' reminds me of that saying: "If all you have is a hammer, you tend to see everything as a nail!"
