Old anchor that I'm debating to produce, what do you think?

So an anchor has been recently discovered that is very old, turns out it is roughly 3,400 years young. And as many point out in anchoring threads here at TF, if your anchor has worked well over time, why replace it with something newer.

I kind of like the style of this anchor and I feel it will appeal to many especially for those still flogging CQR's, Danforth's, and especially Navy anchors. I was thinking this would be more suited as your second anchor or your dinghy anchor. I'm looking for investors:

Looks like it will set and re-set reliably but not sure about ultimate holding strength unless oversized.
