Broken Stick Help Kinda OT

I just purchased a Dan Hamhuis game used stick but the problem is that when I bought it it had a big crack and in shipping the crack turned into a full fracture. The stick is basically in two pieces. I am wanting to know is there anyway to glue it back together and make it sturdy like what kind of glue I'm sure its a Warrior Dolomite and NO I DO NOT WANT TO USE IT IN A GAME I just want to hang it up in my study room and want it to stick together please if any of you have any insight please let me know.

I would suggest going to the local hardware store, take your stick with you and ask one of the employees which glue you should use to fix it. I think they can help you.

Super glue? I'd definitely want to use something clear, so it still looks nice. Stay away from Gorilla Glue.. that stuff turns to an ugly brown and expands as it dries. Maybe some sort of glue for models?

Don't repair it!

It's even more badass this way ... you can even add a fake tooth and some blood around the crack

Broken is great for display IMO.
But if you really want to repair it, go to the pro shop and buy a stick extender. They're wood and they have hot glue on a narrow end and a wider wood end about the size of the outside of a stick.

Oh, this will only work if the crack is pretty straight perpendicular to the shaft direction, similar to if you were cutting the stick short.

Cut off the wide end, and use a hot gun to heat up one end of the stick, and stick it about halfway in. Let it cool, then heat up the other end of the stick and put it in and join the ends of the stick flush.

How would you recommend displaying it broken maybe use a small piece of the tape? Im fine with it being broken but I'd like to hang it horizontally with out it falling to the floor

Hang it in two pieces at angles? That would look the coolest imo
