I would leave the tote as it is. Your grandfather may have a story to tell about the chip. A brass wire brush or wheel works well to get the rust out of pits. If you’re having rust re-appear quickly, apply a coat of oil or wax when you quit working on it for the day. Unprotected metal loves to rust. I use the Paul Sellers oil can to coat my tools. Stuff a rag into a small can, soak it with a light oil (I use 3 in1), then just wipe down your tools after using.
