I do like the Sage4. It has more heft that the Sage1. It is the same width and feels the same unless you want to consider the cutout for the liner lock on the S1. Very solid lockup.
With other titanium things I have (watches, flashlight, etc), they get scratched up quite easily but I think it adds character. I've never seen anything like a patina, it's just like stainless steel but less shiny and it's lighter. It won't rust in salt-water either. Titanium is a very cool metal:
