If you want a true radius, you'll need a cutter grinder and his machinery.

If you are NOT worried about a true radius, it can be done by hand, likely only one flute will cut, but it is possible to do it.

Putting the radius on can be an eyeball operation. reliveing it so the cutter doesn't drag on the work is considerably more demanding. You've got to leave as much metal behind the edge, to support it, yet keep away from rubbing on the cut surface.
