Topic tags/keywords: question

I can’t seem to find edge glued cutting boards, in a rectangular shape, with the edges running top to bottom instead of left to right. Is there a practical reason for this? It seems the top to bottom form would cause less noticeable knife marks. since you usually cut that way. Am I missing something with my reasoning? Thanks.
