If you want a Sage1 you probably won't find it hard to find someone to trade with. The para2 seems to have a great following. It is a great knife. However, IMO I love the Sage1 more than a para2. I don't own a para2 but have held one. It's a great knife but the Sage1 is kind of in a different category I think. The Sage1 being one of my favorites (top 3) I'd say trade, especially if you have more than one para2. If you only have one para2 and have never held or used a Sage1 that's a much harder decision. We have all wanted knives then when we get it we may love it far more than we thought we would or not care for it that much. It's hard to tell sometimes.
Lots of people say everyone should own at least one Delica. As true as that is I think everyone should own a Sage1.
Personally, I think a Gayle Bradley would be a knife better compared to the para2. I believe the para2 is considered more of a work knife than the Sage1 and the GB is definately capable of hard work. It is also one of my top 3 favorite knives.
The GB has M4 steel which is wonderful and gives life meaning.
