I wondered how this would be translated, what does the "Extra" mean in this context and what is a Faschinenmesser?
I'm aware of what it looks like just like some help in the translation.

W?rttembergisches Extra- Faschinenmesser f?r Fussmannschaft der Feld Artillerie

Cheers

Gary

Baz,

In that context 'extra' probably means "great" or "better"
