Quality Rigid Fork. Recommendations?

Last Fall I put a Surly 1 x 1 suspension corrected fork on one of my mountain bikes. I have learned to love it so much that I am thinking about converting my better mountain bike as well. But I am wondering what forks are available that are lighter than the Surly that i have?
