What is the Handsome® font?
Handsome was the first digital typeface to resemble nice, ordinary, fully cursive handwriting. Or neon.
In 2005, Handsome Pro was one of the first script typefaces to utilize the OpenType format to simulate the natural quality of writing, by automatically substituting alternate contextual glyphs. The effect follows the conventional “joining rules” of calligraphy, which are a formalization of the way in which letter forms are modified in cursive handwriting for the sake of speed and efficiency—and also perhaps to make life more interesting.

For the look of real handwriting, Handsome is most convincing at around 15 pts. At much smaller or larger sizes it works differently. At display size, the feel of the non-nib styles is very slick, more like a speedball Kauffman, owing to the smoothness of the finish.
As script fonts go, Handsome has a relatively large x-height, which can be useful if you don’t want the “writing” to look too small.

Are you looking for a free download of Handsome®? Most of the fonts on MartinWaitFonts.com are premium, which means Handsome® is not a free font.
You won't find Handsome® as a free download, so I would advise you just to go ahead and pay for it and download Handsome® HERE. You can find some other great options here on MartinWaitFonts.com as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Handsome® are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.
Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!
It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.
