IMO, I'd get a none Safety chain. Get a semi/full chisel chain. Your Local Stihl dealer will be the place too buy one. They cut so much faster compaired too safety chains.
I'm a complete rookie in the chain saw world, no I do not know how to sharpen a chain saw chain so I ended up purchasing a new one. I went to the local STIHL Dealer with the bar and they matched me up with one. I believe it was a low-kickback one. Unfortunately my father used it when I was over his house helping to cut up some wood, well he failed epically and drilled it into the dirt. It now burns the wood rather then cut... I'm assuming it's because it is super dull and needs to be sharpened up.
