I'm terribly sorry for my absence, as I have been busy with a sports tournament.
But, pressing on: you solved it, Thalia!
Now back to our story-
Nervously, you mumble, "A king?"
With a shout that makes your eardrums pound like a marching band, Sting (the king) congratulates you on your riddle-solving ability. "Feel free to pass!" He booms. Relieved that Sting did not live up to his name, you and the merman swim on. Unfortunately, you know well enough that another danger is not far off. Because you are on your guard, the trial is not unexpected. As you and the merman swish peacefully deeper into the ocean, you become vaguely aware of a dark presence.
It gradually becomes more pronounced (and all the more terrifying in its clarity.) A massive shark is making a beeline (or perhaps sharkline) for its prey...you. Quickly, the merman hands you a small handheld device. "This is an underwater item propeller. It can shoot objects at a very rapid rate underwater. You must use it to defeat this beast. I cannot help you other than with this. Please, stop this monster!"
You have a knife you could put in the propeller, but the shark is so big that it will do hardly any damage, even to an eye or another sensitive spot. How do you defeat the shark?
Go with haste! Once again, your life is at stake!

Unfortunately the propelling device is handheld. If you must hold it in one hand, then conservation of momentum forbids that solution (I think).

*insert joke about our sharp wits here*

I would take a proper guess, but I'm on mobile, and I can't remember the code for a spoiler. I'll have a good go once I get a chance to sit down at a desktop.

You don't have to use a spoiler. Guessing in the open won't give anything away, as this is a challenge, not a riddle. And for phaze and plasmid: since the device is handheld, it is not large enough to fire a person. Try using some other tools.

And I took all the trouble to fire up my good old PC. ^_^

 

I'm not sure what we still have of our original supplies, so I'll try and come up with a solution using each of them.

 

Spoiler for our food

Spoiler for the rope

Spoiler for matches

Spoiler for the knife

Spoiler for the tent

Spoiler for walking stick

Spoiler for our wits

 

Just taking some stabs, really, but they could be correct.

The walking stick/spear thing is a good idea, but not really what I had in mind. I'll give you a hint: this thing is too big and powerful to kill. Trapping it is nigh impossible. What is left?

Distracting it...? (I'd also like to mention how dead we'd all be right now.)
