Use a saw to round toe off then finish with sanding following shoe goo if you like.

I would inject PVA glue into the cracks with needle and syringe , parcel tape overnight then sand. I would not go anywhere near it with a saw.

Very simple repair. As James says, glue tape sand.

Could fit a toe guard after Id you wanted but that all depends on preference

Do you think bats with very square toes are more susceptible tot this type of damage? I've got a couple with very square corners and they all have this type of damage, but the 'rounder' ones like my Aldred don't seem to?
I've been considering making a template and giving them all the same toe shape/angle as the Aldred.
I just superglue them as suggested above and then make an epoxy toe guard from West 105

Yes, the edges and corners of square toes are more brittle

This is just toe feathering. Search CBF for "feathering" and you will find several posts...

In large scheme of things, it is not a big deal and happens to bats all the time.

Followed the advice here.
Used glue/clamp followed by sanding next day.
Will use shoe goo now instead of toe guard.

I think you are more likely to see a chunk of the toe break off with a square toe as it is a weak point, but I have experienced feathering with every bay shape I have ever used.  If anything I think it was more common on older bats which generally could withstand more damage than today's lower density blades which seem to suffer terminable damage with greater frequency

To  help avoid feathering shape the toe so that the back of the bat toe is slightly longer than the face as this keeps the face of  the toe off the ground.

Thats exactly what you have done with my bat. Now I know why,I will try to copy that on my other bat
