It's been around a relatively long time. A good 30 years or more. (Consider the modern saw chain as we know it didn't come along until the mid 50's IIRC!) Square ground is used out west a lot more than in the east and it's a special order chain in most places. I've only ever seen it personally once and never used it myself, but I understand it's better cutting than the standard chain, especially in the big soft woods they have out west. It pays to have a sharper, better cutting chain when you're cutting huge wood. But the catch is it takes a lot of skill to sharpen right, even with a grinder. It takes a special file and you file into the cutter rather than away as we do with standard chisel chain. I believe the rakers (depth gauges) are also sent quite a bit different. It's usually confined to the larger saws too, it's just not needed for Joe Sixpack cutting 2 foot firewood.
