In this discussion I want to include all Spyderco-made Salt Knives, but especially the Fish Hunter, Aqua Salts, Pacific Salt, and especially the Spyderco Caribbean with Lc200N blade.
First of all, read this:
The scientists seem to change their minds at times. First they claim the shark attacks are in the decline and then they claim they are on the rise:

And now, here is my question, for all of you here who are into Salts and the Caribbean and for sal, as well.
Would a Spyderco Salt knife such as the Caribbean make a great defense and protection tool in case of a shark attack or not?
If the swimmer or diver or fisherman or boater or whomever had to use that razor-sharp Lc200N (or H1 blade in other Salts) to send that shark the message to "KEEP AWAY!" would it work or would the person most likely be severely wounded or die from bites and blood loss even if they were to inflict some serious wounds on these creatures?
A Marine Biologist told me the sharks more often than not do not want to eat humans. They prefer fish and seals and whale meat, but, they test to see what something is by nudging and biting it.
