comment Should old knob and tube wiring be replaced?
And if it's asbestos, best policy is to leave it in place. Moving it, even with care, has been shown to increase the number of fibers in the air.

I slip new loom over the top of the old brittle wire. Or, modern heat shrink, and don't have to splice anything. The salvage places (Ohmega and Urban Ore near San Francisco) have the tubes.

80 years is nothing to copper. 80 year old copper is fine. And the 80 year old wood in the same house is probably better than modern wood. The wire used in knob & tube is generally 14 or 12 gauge, same as modern wire, except spaced better.

@Michal no need for fire caulk, regular old caulk is fine.
