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.

Thanks.

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:

potterma@gmail.com

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.

There's a great scale tutorial here:

Brad Southard (Tricod on the Spyderco home forum) makes excellent Mule scales. He's also a custom knifemaker. Google him.

Thank you for the reminder! I had completely forgotten to check on the new releases. They're still available as of a few minutes ago.

I have done a quick 550 cord handle for now just so I can start using the knife. This thing cuts like a champ so far. I haven't had to sharpen it yet but I am guesing it won't be easy.
