Yep, the chain used in quality bike chain locks are made from a special hardened alloy, designed for it's cut resistance.

I heard nautical supply depots may have a suitable chain, but it will cost you in the end as much as one of the chain locks out there. I know Avenir used to make a killer chain lock for $25-30. I still have mine, tough as nails, but heavy too. They used a lock on it that was very similar to Abus's captive shackle padlock.
