I just re-did a Disston like that. I didn’t have the cracks, but as the other guys said, some dark epoxy should work well. The upper horn on mine was about like your lower. I used another handle for a bit of wood, glued and clamped with rubber bands, some blo darkened it up and it matches the original wood quite well. I had to replace a couple of improper nuts too. Bringing these old saws back to life is very satisfying. Go for it and have fun!
