I've picked up some Sibex (Siberian Express) rigid ti forks for my KK. They have a similar look to the on-ones, shape-wise, but are very light weight. I believe they retail for about 400 USD new, but I picked mine up for half that on ebay. Haven't ridden them yet, so can only tell you about weight and price.

Those new generation rigid forks look so ugly since they have to be as long as a 5 inch suspension fork.

Mine answer to an 80mm fork, or 3.15 inches in length. I prefer the look of say a Kona project 2 (rounded not square), but they actually look okay.

Drapoon, the skydecompe ones are just xacd ones. They just distribute stuff direct from the xcad catalogue (compare the two websites and all you'll notice is different stickers). My money would be on the black sheep stuff, nice bunch of guys who actually ride and will listen to what you want and build to suit your need rather than just offer you a generic 'me too' product.
