IGNORE the Korin sharpening videos. Compared to simple visual observation (especially using The Magic Marker Trick) stroke counting is not only inherently inaccurate but it's much more so for a beginning sharpener who gets lots of high and low spots, and uses wide variations in pressure. Also, The Coin Trick is an extremely poor method for establishing angles. If you have any feeling for geometry you can probably puzzle this out for yourself. If not, ask.
READ this thread with extra attention to posts 4, 7, 10 and 14. READ this thread extra with attention to posts 4, 6, 8 and 15. Regarding the second thread (the one with "reprofiling" in its title) let me be clear that I'm recommending it to help you understand some of the sharpening possibilities and am not suggesting that you change the profile of your new knife or you use a multi bevel of any sort.
I very strongly recommend that you READ the articles and WATCH the videos I recommended in the first thread (the one with "Sabatiers" in its title). They are far more helpful to understanding the sharpening process and contain much better and more usable sharpening advice than the Korin series. Nothing against Korin, mind you.
Since the FKM ships sharp, there's no hurry to get it on the stones and start sharpening. This is especially true since its likely your first efforts will be more counter-productive than not.
Just in the way of basic sharpening education, it's important that you understand that when it comes to expressed ratios of asymmetry (like 70/30), they are -- each and every one -- IMPRECISE. What those numbers mean as a practical matter is that the right side bevel is about twice as wide as the left side bevel. The reality of sharpening and maintaining asymmetry is that "about twice as wide" is as close as you're going to get and no amount of stroke counting will make 70/30 or 60/40 more accurate than ~2:1.
Similarly when we're talking about freehand sharpening, and talk about specific angles -- like 15* for instance -- our actual sharpening is far less precise than our angle holding. The only way to get truly precise angles is to use fairly sophisticated tools; which, expressly does not refer to simple devices like angle guides or angle clamps, while it specifically includes but is not limited to the combination of an Edge Pro, a stop collet, and an angle finding cube.
When you do need to sharpen your new knife, the best profile to start sharpening (unless you're left handed) is the one with which it shipped. That is 15* on both sides, with ~2:1 (60/40 - 70/30) right handed asymmetry.
