After emailing Halpern Titanium right after this thread went up, I finally got an email back today. They'd run out of the orange scales entirely, but I've got a one of the Option 4 scales in black coming to me and one of the Option 5 in CF, shipping out today. Can't wait to slap these on the K390 mules.
I have option 2(seem to be discontinued), 4 (earth brown dream out of G10) and 5 (slim, light, perfect for kitchen use) scales for my Mules, option 4 being the most used.
Actually 4 and 5 were mistaken at first shipment (bought them when MT11 came alive) but the folks of Halpern Titanium did take care of the mistake and all was perfect!
The fit of those scales is great, included hardware is suitable for multiple screw on/off exercises (I have some Mules to choose from and use the three pairs of scales for whichever one I want to take).
Maybe those discontinued ones are a little square-ish, some kind of finish-yourself thick G10 slabs but 4 and 5 are ready to use palm delights.
Canīt go wrong with those!
Nevertheless I am going to wait for the hype to settle as I will get some orange and natural option 4s.
Scales have arrived. I decided to slap on the CF pair first. They look great. Here's the K390 mule fresh from slicing up some roasted pork loin for lunch:
My blue Option 5 are here and I really like them. Yeah HT!
I talked to them on thurs and they have a new color Black Forest Green. I ordered a set in option 4 along with a set in ranger green. I don't know if BFG is available in option 5, sorry but I didn't ask. I was only interested in option 4. I'll post pics when the scales come in

PS those pics were taken AFTER I did the WD40 / Dawn dish soap / WD40 treatment That's why the scales were sitting on the paper towels in the first place. And No; I don't have anything in British Racing Green to put up there for comparison -- They never came out with a native in brg.

Thanks Jason -- I've got to jump on this before they're all gone ...and welcome to the forum !
Just ordered my grips by phone: Option 4, Coyote & Ranger Green; and Option 5, OD Green. She had to "go out and check on" the Coyote to verify that they still had some. Stocks are getting low on some of these. I have only one mule but wanted to check these out and have some on hand for future use. I got my USPS Priority Mail confirmation within a couple of hours.
Sadly, I think I'll be passing on the scales...not sure where I will find another option. But the lowest shipping to Canada is $22. That doubles the price and seems very excessive to me.
Bit bummed...but I'm not going to pay double.
On the hunt for...
I would suggest maybe buying multiples for possible future mules.
