My s90v mule showed up today and I was wondering if any one can post a link for a sheath and is any one making/selling scales for them? I would love to make my own scales but I just don't have the tools or the time.

I don't know of anyone making a ready made sheath, but several folks make scales for them. A fellow in your area can do just about any scale you want. His email is:
I plan on using him for a couple Mules myself when I replenish my knife funds.

Let me show my ignorance here and ask; What is a scale?

It's what you'd call a "stock" on a handgun - the "grip" of the knife. :)

It depends on what kind of sheath you want - but off the top, River City is making kydex for them, and there are quite a few folks that will do leather. There are a lot of good ideas for pretty simple home-brew kydex and leather sheaths over at the Spyderco forum if you want to do it yourself.
I recently finished my first set of scales for a mule, and while it's not perfect, I think it came out pretty well. The only shop tool that I had to borrow time on was a band saw, to cut the roughed out handle in half. The rest was done with a dremel, and a bunch of hand finishing to get the right feel.
