I think the issue with this article is that it doesn't clearly enough outline what war you imagine as the threat.
1) Large wars between major powers will have nuclear weapons at play; there is every reason to believe that they will be 72 hour wars.
2) Wars like Ukraine don't involve mass industrial mobilization so you shouldn't expect weapons to be producible in large quantities on short notice.

There's gotta be inventory somewhere, maintained in deep storage quietly by a long chain of astute master chiefs, of USN M1917(M1941) Boarding Cutlasses, right?
