Looking at the advert, it appears that the chain is sharpened by grinding the 
outside/top of the teeth. This would instantly or quickly wreck a normal 
chain, where the chrome is on the outside. I remember that back in the 70's 
one of the manufacturers (probably Oregon)made a chain with the chrome on the 
inside face of the tooth, and the bevel the other way, for cross-cutting at 
ride-side after timber had been skidded out;  the idea was that the mud would 
wear the outside of the tooth and it would remain sharp(ish?); FC tried it on 
their plantations down here; but I heard no more about it and when I enquired 
of Oregon about such chains years later all they could offer was a 
double-chrome plated conventional chain. It looks from the shape of the teeth 
in the advert that they might have resurrected a version of the original.
