Are you talking about chipper, semi chisel, and full chisel? Those ar ethe most common with square ground chains also are full chisel chain. chipper the tooth is real rounded on the leading corner. Semi chisel is just like chisel with a rounded working corner. Full chisel makes a point in the corner. Square is full chisel with a flat side cutter and top cutter. It is the fastest cutting chian available.

Stihl has a good site explaining the difference on their chains. Oregon's wasn't where I think it explained enough for you on cutters difference.

I might add to that some time ago there were more types of chains but for all intents today it will most generally be semi chisel,round and square .

The chipper was real popular at one time and I'm not even sure if it's made any more .This is something you most generally find on antiques .

On the stihl site posted. Look at the RSC round chisel and RSLK square chisel chains. I'm not good at explaining things.

Chipper is still made for harvesters, but not for chainsaws, as far as I know.

Carlton still make chipper in 3/8 AFAIK, or at least it's still available here as I bought a few loops for cutting railway sleepers (railroad ties) last year.
