The business edge of the skew is the comes out the same whether from a rectangular or oval shape. I personally like flat skew but I don’t use the skew exactly as intended.It seems too finicky or erratic a cutting tool unless you are just going around a bead and then I probably do them wrong too. I use it as a groover and a scraper most of the time so the oval would be no advantage to me …maybe a disadvantage!
