Work House Knife

So I own a few Japanese knives, and I notice I'm quite delicate and careful with how I preform with them. I would like to get something in the more German category, and get more of a work horse knife. I want something that I can sort of bump around and not be so careful and care for a lot, but still have a nice knife as well. I've been looking at some of the Wusthof's and Victorinox's but perhaps there's better options you may conceive of. Some of my desires are as followed. Greatly appreciated!

-Under $130 or so

-Stainless Steel

-Eight Inches

-French Design

I just got a 240 Western Deba last week - the thing is a beast! Weighs almost a pound and would be serious workout to use for extended period of time. The 210 is more wieldy @ 11 - 12oz.

I'm a huge fan of Forgecraft and other American carbon knives and always have one, or two to work on. Here's one I did last fall:

Here's another example of reworked ODC (old dirty carbon) unknown maker, but a real nice profile. The tip was damaged so I reground the top edge for a new one. On both these knives I moved the balance point to the pinch.
