My general rules for finishing of kitchen utensils are:
1. If the item is intended to touch food, the finish is a simple mineral oil and beeswax.
2. If the item is merely a handle that won't actually touch food, and will rarely be immersed in water, I use varnish - either WOP or a shop-made long-oil varnish made from a commercial spar varnish, pure Tung oil, and turpentine.

I made 17 cheese cutters (stainless steel inserts) this year and used Spar Urethane. Takes a long time for the urethane to cure, but after 3 weeks they all feel good.

Last batch.

Chocolate, but sometimes carmel, nuts, and a cherry!

Last time I tried that the only thing it persistently struck to was my stomach.

I'm a little retentive about "food safe" and the general claim that almost everything is food safe once it cures.
At the end of the day most of us are using plastic cutting boards, God alone know what non-stick coated cookware, and all the food come out of plastic bottles and bags to begin with. Our air is so polluted there is a company making money compressing and canning "fresh" air on a remote mountain top in Canada and shipping it worldwide.

The WOP used for the ice cream scoop probably isn't going to negatively affect ones life expectancy.

My wife would argue that the real risk is with the ice cream itself.

I find a coat or two of Culverís frozen custard works best.
