rigid fork

a non-internet using co-worker asked me if i knew where he could get a 'tange switchblade' for his old mountain bike. i looked online and found that a lot of people use the bontrager rigid except it is disc brake only. so, looking for a carbon legged rigid for use with rim brake. suggestions?

oh, must be carbon as the bike is all raw carbon and would just look silly with a surly 1x1 on there.

This fits the bill, but damn, thats a lot of dough for a rigid.

or this one. May be more what he wants as its a little cheaper. Still a crap ton of money though

Does it need to be carbon. A black fork would look okay on a raw carbon frame. What frame is it?
