I remember watching one stream where this happened.

Is it possible to do it? How? Has it been fixed?

There was a time where the second saw was bugged and would go straight up, but I've never heard of both going forward. You're sure this wasn't a custom match, right? There are all sorts of crazy settings/mods for those.

I'm not the best to answer this, however I believe there are (or were) 2 ways to do this.

the first one happened simply because the small saw would go to the same direction as the normal saw? (duh!) either way I never learned how to trigger this + it was patched iirc.

the 2nd way happens because occationally you will launch the small saw before the main saw, so what some people will do is they wait until skree poops the the small saw (because it comes out first) and then they will shoot the main saw to the direction of the small saw. resulting in a similar but smaller effect that I'm pretty sure is yet to be patched.

it was a bug with the skill aiming visuals option. This option makes saw release when you let go of right-click (or whatever you have saw bound to) rather than when you press. When this option was introduced the spare blade was still set to come out when you press down.

So you could:
face away -> right click down -> face towards -> right click up

This would fire both saws in the same direction

This has since been fixed
