Best way to finish knife handle

After reading the wonderful, erudite, responses on this website, I have to buck up my courage to post this question. I recently purchased a Chinese cleaver-type implement – picture below. The problem is that the handle is completely untreated and I hate to use bare wood in the kitchen. I do not have any varnish, but I do have a bottle of wood glue. Would there be any problem down the road if I painted the handle with wood glue? I keep my knives dry, and always clean them immediately after use. I would welcome a better suggestion.
