"to commence with" usage


why should I use the phrase "to commence with"?


A native english speaker told me that he has never used this phrase because this phrase sounds very odd to native speaker, is that true?


Also, for my sentence, should I say:

(1) He has never used . . .


(2) He had never used . . . 


(3) He has had never used . . . 


which one is correct?

Thank you
