DO IT !!!!!!!

I've got to know if that bling works. Its a good looking anchor, even though I wouldn't necessarily want it in SS either.

Isn't the shank a hollow tube? I presume that is to allow the weighted blades to roll over to the bottom, but I wonder what kind of side load it would take.

You've got to test one of those for us. It's your duty. You drew us all in, after all.
