My Global Just Cracked - Is This Typical? Also, post errors?

Note: Sorry if I'm posting repetative posts - every time I hit "Post", I get an error page. This is my 3rd try.

I've been in the tank for Global knives ever since I held my first about 5 years ago. But, about an hour ago, I dropped my 5.5" Vegetable knife about 2' onto the linoleum and it cracked at the handle, nearly into two pieces.

So, two questions:

1) While the manufacturer's site mentions that they don't cover dropped knives in their warranty, has anyone else had luck getting a replacement in a similar situation?

2) Is this a common occurrence? I mean, high-end (well, sort of high-end) knives cracking with light impacts?

Sad photos attached.
