Turning handle question

>I'm going to try turning some handles to replace the current ones on my turning tools. I'd like to make them about 14-16" long, which is longer than any of my current handles, so I don't have anything to work off of.

Can anyone tell me how wide is the widest part of your 14-16" handle? Something like, "My Sorby 1/2" bowl gouge has a handle 14" long and is 1 1/4 inch at the widest part."

Thanks!
