  4. Etymology: [From Full, a.]


  1. Fuller

    A fuller is a rounded or beveled groove or slot in the flat side of a blade. A fuller is often used to lighten the blade, much the way that the shape of an I-beam allows a given amount of strength to be achieved with less material, although it has long been a popular belief that the fuller serves to allow the flow of blood. When combined with proper distal tapers, heat treatment and blade tempering, a fullered blade can be 20% to 35% lighter than a non-fullered blade without any sacrifice of strength or blade integrity. This effect lessens as the blade is reduced in length.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Fuller

    fool′er, n. a half-round set-hammer.

Dictionary of Nautical Terms

  1. fuller
