This pattern is known as a ‘ribbon’ saw and is designe for felling. Because it is narrow you can get a wedge in the felling kerf sooner than with a broader saw. The wedge widens & opens the kerf and makes the saw run with less friction. Broader saws are better for cross-cutting horizontal logs e.g. when cutting firewood logs to length.
That said, I have found this particular saw outstanding for cutting wood whether it is stands vertical or sits horizontal.
