splinters and dents in bokken

I am a beginner in Aikido and I just had one of my first class times using the bokken . Due to my incredibly bad form, after class I asked my class mates where I could acquire a affordable bokken to practice at home with. I was given a slightly beaten up bokken that needs repair. I was told to sand it and oil it or put some kind of wood protector on it. But there are big deep 'scratches' left from big splinters . Should I just sand inside it so it doesn't catch anything or fill it in with like saw dust and wood glue. The biggest 'scratch' is 2 1\2 centimeters long and 4 millimeters wide.
