The prototype will be the "real deal" this time. Made from 3V. 0.268" thick steel. The tang will be skeletonized. It will be much lighter than you think, yet still be forward-balanced for chopping, etc. Also, the grind will be "stout"...meaning probably 0.030" thick at the edge (up to 0.040" behind the sharpened edge).
