How do I make a diagonal planar cut through an object to create a beveled face?

I want to make a hollow cylinder with a beveled edge, similar to a needle. What sort of cut do I make to achieve this?

    Draw the profile you wish to remove on the centreline of the cylinder and then do a symmetrical remove extrude to take that part away.

    That answer, although terribly written might get you until someone can throw out one of those fancy gif demonstrations...

    If I am understanding you correctly, a chamfer on the outer edge of the rim should achieve what you want. Or a revolve to cut the angle you want.
