Shaping a neck is a favorite part of lutherie for me.
It starts with this small and very sharp draw knife to begin the shape.
Then I switch to a spokeshave to refine the shape a bit.
I begin shaping the" hook" with this great old chisel that I bought in England years ago.
Then a surform rasp to make the rounded curves of the "hook"
And finally it is all smoothed up with a regular rasp
The final touch is burning in the identity info but there will be lots more sanding and shaping after they are on the instruments.
