Its just a scraping cut using the lower wing of an Ellsworth or other long wing grind. Very safe cut, use it often. Good for roughing, especially wet wood. For finish cuts, drop the handle such that the cutting edge is at least 45* to the spindle axis/ surface, called sheer scraping.

Using both the scraping cut along with bevel push cuts when roughing just uses more of the sharpened edge of the tool, providing more cutting time between sharpenings.
