    as i’ve narrowed down my list of what i’d like to own, i’m realizing i really like the performance / design of fullered folders.

    wanna share pics of your favorites in this category?

    i know, among a few others, i want a rogers slim utility someday (hey, a dude can dream) but i’d love to see more...

    I'm curious about this. I can't remember ever seeing a folder with a fuller.

    As far as performance, I would prefer thumbstuds on the Anax for opening and the Vantage
    fuller is for looks mostly I suppose.

    i do dig the look of it but in reading about the original purpose (i remembered my old man calling it a blood groove which it totally was not for that) i guess it was to strengthen the ridge above it, which seems counterintuitive but turns out is based in engineering.

    Medford like the fullered folder so much he made it the opening method on most of his knives. I'm a sucker for fullers too. Just aesthetically. Someone already posted the Anax. The Microtech Cypher original blade shape actually had a smaller fuller within the fuller. Possibly more nested within, I didn't look under magnification.

    Begg knives, including the Steelcraft series, frequently feature fluted blades. Not nearly as horrid as a typical fuller, imo. Beyond that, I'm not much help on this one... except in that I'm not part of your competition for the knives :thumbsup:

    Mostly just a style choice, but to my surprise they're my favorite opening method on this Olamic model I really like, the Swish:

    I don't think I've ever opened one with the hole; for that matter I'm not sure if I even can. I used to use the flipper but after discovering I can casually middle finger flip them using the fuller I've been doing that almost exclusively, just because it's fun.

    The Praetorian Slim is a great fuller flicker. I exlusively spydie flick it open with my middle finger. Nice not having a hole, thumbstud or flipper.

    it reduces weight while adding strength sort of like an “I” beam.

    My favorite knife is the Buck 110, I would love if it came with no nail nick at all. It is not necessary and collects crud.

    But there was a recent 110 that had a cool full length nail nick. It looked very much like a fuller, but sadly was only on one side.

    I’ve been looking for a picture but can’t find one. It was a dealer exclusive but I don’t remember the dealer.
