Coping saw handles

Brian Holcombe
I’ll participate a bit in livening things up. I hate my coping saw handle, my hands are in pain after literal moments of using it. I’ve been tempted to make a more bulbous handle in the hopes that having a greater purchase will relieve this issue.

Any thoughts on the design?

I will likely model it after the handles John Aniano made for the draw knife, they’re a comfortable grip. But I thought to put this out there unless there is something specific to the motion of coping saws. The grip one takes is a little different.
