Looks good. A lathe is a nice piece of equipment to have.

Brass seems better to me. The walnut color seems mostly in the warm range. So brass would go along, but still be visually outstanding. Chrome seems sort of cold.

I think chrome it will provide a better contrast , or mayby push the boat out and go for silver.. Mind you my budget wouldnt go for it

Whateveryou choose it will work the shank will look good .

Well,I have made a decision on the handle..It's going to be a continuation of walnut.The shaft was kinda short so I thought an extension was in order..Here's a couple pics of how I did it so far..Will turn tomorrow and I'm leaning towards turquoise inlays in the handle for highlights..
