Being as how you asked, here's what I have learned about patina over the years and my thoughts on it.
First off, patina is really just rust. Much as gun bluing is rust. It's just controlled rust.
Different materials react slightly differently with the metal and give a slightly different shade of patina.
All artificially induced patinas look artificial due to the consistency and depth of the color.
A true patina developed over the years looks best because of the subtle shadings and depths of color caused by the various oxidation sources involved.
CV could technically be called a form of stainless due to the chromium content. The degree a steel is stainless is controlled by the amount of chromium in it. All stainless will rust, it just stains less.
Finally, it's your knife so your choice as to what you do to it. If it was mine, I'd just stick it in my pocket and let mother nature do her thing. If it's truly a user, it will be exposed to enough elements; apples, oranges, onions, sweat, blood, vinegar, tree sap, etc. so a natural patina will develop rather quickly. If it's just a "pocket queen" it may never develop one.
