Cx carbon disc fork - Any inputs ?

As title says, I'm looking for a carbon fork for my 2013 steel cx bike. To be more specific, I need a 1"1/8 steerer (no taper), disc mounts and straight blades. Kinda like the growing qty of tapered fork available on the market !

Used or new, I don't mind as it will probably be painted in a near future. What I've seen so far is the Kinesis and WoundUp, but I'm not sold on these models. I would prefer something like the ENVE one, but without breaking the bank.

Let me know if you see something interesting !
Thanks

btw, for this bike :

Whiskey makes one with an aluminum steerer. Supposedly they are coming out with a full carbon non-tapered disc fork soon.

Edit: I just remembered this. Look at Bikeman.com. They used to have a full carbon Carver for a good price.

Typically you find a made in china sticker on most,
because the company brand is about selling it not making it..

lots of CX carbon forks out there,, some have both brake mounts..

I'm waiting to see what's up with the vaporware non-tapered full carbon Whisky. Most other forks I've seen in 45mm rake and 400ish axle to crown simply don't offer much weight savings over the Vicious Cycles steel fork I'm running now. If I'm going to spend hundreds upgrading my fork I want to save significant weight doing it.

Here is another option, but the fact that no claimed weight is listed makes me pretty sure it's a pig.

There was one generation of the Ritchey WCS fork (full carbon) that came with disc tabs and removable canti studs. That could be a good option if the dimensions work for you and you're comfortable riding a pre-owned fork.
