Does anyone have information on how you would put a fuller into a blade using the traditional method of blacksmithing.

thanks

You need a die ( i hope that is the correct word in English).
Traditionally you need a second person working with the die and its counterpart. A modern solution is to fix them both to a spring, so you don't need a helping hand.

A lot of fullers were also scraped or ground. There's some good information in this thread:
