Skimming up to an external corner

I'm reskimming a wall that ends in a 90 degree external corner - the other side of the corner is fine so I don't intend to skim that. What is the best way do get a neat edge between the old and the new plaster at the corner? Should I use a thin coat stop bead at the corner? If so, will that leave a neat edge on the side that doesn't need skimming?

agree mate, hard to get a good fixing.
If it's got tapits approval that's that idea gone.
As John says best idea is just to feather up to the existing edge, and light sand if needed. Why would you put a corner bead on to then have to feather out the other wall that's perfectly alright?

Because I would want a nice sharp corner .
