I would say that such a blade would be a good investment for a logger, or someone who uses their saw professionally or regularly.
Consider that were you to purchase such a chain, you would need to have it sharpened periodically by a professional, which compounds the cost to
Pine is a soft wood; even with a regular chain, a decent saw should cut it like butter.
I would recommend to anyone using a chainsaw, to learn how to sharpen your own chain, along of course with the usual engine maintenance. It is not
difficult, saves money, and could get you out of a jam if you suddenly find that your only blade is dull. All you need is a file, perhaps an angle
Thusly, a good standard chain ($25 USD) might serve the casual firewood cutter nicely for years.
The last poster's idea is good, too! One cane buy five chains for the cost, and use them in rotation. Then, when they dull, take the batch in to have
them all sharpened by a pro.
