I think I caught it kinda early, but some water definitely got in because if I squeeze the blade in some spots it makes a crunch noise (you can hear it in video).
Any chance of repairing this stick? I've seen people use wood glue and epoxy and they said they had ok results, but I'm skeptical. Obviously I should just try it and see what happens, but I just started playing on the ice a few months ago, and might not be able to tell if the stick isn't performing how it should.
At the very least, I think the epoxy will make it ok to use for just stick handling.

I really hope I can fix, because the way this stick is tapered, I don't think there is any chance of fitting another tapered blade in, since the dagger taper is so thin. Flipping it over is an option, but then the kick point is all messed up :/
What do you guys think? Is there any chance to save this?
