Hey Luke.

Why don't you just put it in the stash?

$c->stash->{handler} = MyHandler->new(); in begin or whatnot?

then it'll be available from all your classes as $c->stash->{handler}, 
and just handler in your templates. you say you need this available in 
models as well. Models usually don't have access to context, but you can 
use the Catalyst::Plugin::Singleton to get a context from anywhere.
