Just a simple handle with a shallow taper, bead and rounded but end.

Wood is Bloodwood

Finish is home mixed Shine Juice and paste wax

Turned on a Grizzly G0602 bench top metal lathe converted to VFD controlled variable speed and a Nova chuck

I like it. A good grip is must. Your choice of a pointed scoop was inspired.
