    The smell will not last long, just build a nice natural patina and enjoy.

    I have only used the FKH for a week, but so far this knife is actually the first knife I usually grab. I like the extra length on on the 270 compare to hiro (240)
    At first I really have some problem with FKH since it really has a strong smell and when I was cutting salmon, it left black color on my hand (even after I forced patina once)
    Now is way more stable, I just missed the patina... It only has a really LIGHT patina.

    Right now I have it closer to 60/40 because I use it with a lot of board contact from day to day. It's a little tougher though I'm considering adding a microbevel.

    You might consider a single microbevel ā la Jon Broida. It allows you to use very low angles for the edge.
