I am looking for a comfortable wooden handle blueprint to give to my friend so he can make my wooden handles.

Well, if you're going to make your own handles for your own hands, then it's pretty easy to customize what you want. Personally, I love a good S shape on the palm-side or "backstrap", so that I've got a good thumb-relief and a nice palm-swell. You don't see enough of these these days, people always throw on those ugly stick things half-assedly. The finger area is always challenging, there are a lot of things you can do there, but a simple line works pretty well. I'd do this in 3/4" or 1" wood, that will give you some good hand-filling volume. Then, round over the edges with a router, sand the living fuck out of it, then put either a paint or some stain and sealer on there. Done right, sealer makes for a very unique and striking blaster.

A simple trick would be to get some balsa wood. This way you have an easy wood to personalize to your hand. Simply take a block that feels comfortable and slowly round it into the desired shape. Then you have something to go off of.

Steel or foam, it makes no differance. We settle this like nerds...

I don't think this is old enough to be considered a necro.

This basic design I threw together in a few minutes and should suffice as a start, but nothing that can't be improvised on one's own. Rough measurements made on a Rampage. The real problem is how to sand it. I'll keep working on it and try to make it more precise and rounded.

Just to clarify:

It is a necro...
...but necros are okay if you add new content (which you did)
