Help to identify W&B straight razor

Gents, I just bought this Wade and Butcher and hope you can help with some info on it. I know it's post 1890 due to the stamp, but other than that I know nothing. I'm not even sure if the case goes with the razor. The case is stamped as a keen shaving "bow" razor.

If you look at the close up of the blade it appears that there was some sort of design and lettering once there. Anyone familiar???

Thanks in advance!!!

After looking at some other photo's I do believe you are correct. It is a wedge and there is a "w" visible in the top center of the razor (not visible in the picture) that matches with a lather well shave well. It's a shame that design is wore off the blade. thanks!
