Thanks so much for the detailed explanation JJ. 

The movement is so minor, but noticeable.

It's probably less that 1/16" and more like 1/32"

Just frustrating, because otherwise this big old knife is just perfect!'Again, thanks for your time, and all the best.

Hey JJ, will those oils actually swell the wood some?

I watched a youtube video that showed those type oils are good for conditioning and cleaning, but did nothing to swell the wood. What do you think? In your experience, does the wood swell at all with a good soaking in any of your suggestions>

Thanks a bunch for your time JJ.

"Heidi, Nice looking knife.  You certainly don't want to soak it in water.   A better option is oil.  Tung oil, boiled linseed oil or even mineral oil is preferable.  "
