    Swing till she breaks. Buy epoxy repair kit. Thoughly clean the parts, (I can't emphasize this too much), then fix per directions.

    Get a nice hickory or ash handle.

    I think I'd cut some hardwood wedge pieces to drive into the void. Probably will require a good adhesive too. Any fix will be temporary, as the forces involved in splitting are considerable.

    The epoxy suggestion above is probably best otherwise.

    The best option, IMO. I think hardware stores or Home Depot/Lowe's stock composite handles with that profile now.
