You're missing the point (no pun intended!). The knife instantly falls out of it's sheath into the drink. Then...there is no way you can hurt yourself with it. Can't get any "safer" than that!

Seriously, maybe your's was defective (looks like it has a mechanical release). If West Marine carries them (and IF you still have it!), I would check them out there. They would probably exchange it. No excuse for Gill not responding though! Unfortunately, poor customer service (or NO customer service!) seems more common now days.
