Actually the tenon
Blade = the part that touches the ice
Hosel = the part above the blade
Tenon = the slimmer "tab" that fits into the shaft
I actually haven't used glue in a couple years, just tape, and let the expanding/contracting of the shaft hold the blade in place. Most tapered blades need at least one strip of tape on one side of the tenon. Sometimes a strip around both sides. Rarely does it need strips on the narrow side of the tenon. I add enough tape that it won't fit when the shaft is cool, but heat it up and it will usually go in with just a bit of force. When it cools, if it doesn't wiggle or move at all, it will never be a problem. And no glue cracking or rattling.
