Don’t think so, as it looks like the lower edge has no teeth.
I’m guess img it’ll make sharpening easier.
🤷🏽‍♂️

If the lower edge had no teeth it would stop the file progressing back to sharpen .

Looks like a system to produce square ground with pre-set files. Good idea if it works, will give it a try, I recently learnt to square file and it makes soft wood cutting a joy but isn't easy and you can ruin a chain if you get it wrong. So good to see a manufacturer coming up with a user friendly option.

I don't understand this bit, lower edge of what ? Sorry if I'm being obtuse.

I think he is talking about the file but , if the lower edge of the file had no teeth it would stop the file from progressing back toward the back of the cutter as you sharpen .

It does look super aggressive in comparison to other chains.
 

I wonder how it will cut when it has had the edge taken off it? Square is useless when dulled- full chisel tolerable but only just.

File has two cutting edges, upper & lower & the bottom (third) edge has no teeth. _>

Exactly . The lower edge ( that cuts the gullet ) does have teeth . If it didn't the file would not progress toward the back of the cutter as you sharpen . P.S. I like the look of it . Seems a idiot proof way of sharpening " square ground " chain . Wonder if they will make them in .058 gauge  for a Husky bar ?
