I've never tried it, and I can't remember whose site I saw this trick on, but someone made a device for carving fullers. They took a bar of steel and cut a hole in it so they could insert a piece of tool steel like you would use with a lathe. The tool steel was shaped for the fuller, and there was a moveable stop on the handle. To use, he would set the stop so the tool steel hit the center of the blade and draw the tool down the blade. Repeated passes would carve the groove. I looked for the site, but couldn't find it.

Alternatively, you could just stop by your local machine shop and slip them a $20 to mill it out for you.
