i collect straights , some 100 plus or so , i have 6 Wade & Butcher straights , all pre 1891 , have that one .
also known as a " chopper " hence the wide blade , the curve on the end of the blade is a " Barbers Notch "
notch was used very close to the nostril allowing a very close shave under the nose .

And might I add--my barber is truly the last old barbershop in the area still run by the original founders, well two of them.
