I understand the basic physics... add 6" of handle, and you'll get more momentum out of the head, all else being equal... however, for the application we're looking at- a GP utility tool and CQB weapon- the additional momentum offers little practical advantage, at the cost of 50% more length... theres also something to be said for being ale to stop, alter, or control tha t momentum...
