Is the tote you have repairable?  If the horn is broken you can plane the break flat, epoxy on a piece the right size, shape it and refinish it.  Wiktor's site used to have a page showing how that's done before he took it down, but isn't hard to figure it out.  Here's another site that shows the process -

A better match with the replacement wood would make it a lot less obvious.

If the break is lower, here's a site with a suggested approach -

You could probably have the tote fixed in a couple of hours and be back in business.

Thanks Phil.  The break is like the first link you sent.  Looks like that's what I'll do, once I locate some suitable wood.  hmm... might have something in my pen blank stuff that would be about right. Were all of the totes made from rosewood at that time?

Thanks,

I have one from a Type 11 No 6 plane if that will work let me know. I think It should fit in a small flat rate box. Can text pictures if you want

Thanks,

I don't know if ALL totes were made from rosewood, but a lot of them were.  If you can't come up with any suitable wood I have some East India Rosewood scrap and I could send you a piece big enough for your repair.
