All it will do is break on the saw and make
a bang and scare you the first time it happens.

I have a 3-wheel band saw and I break blades
often on it. I’m used to it. The blade just
relaxes against the shell of the saw so it’s
usually not even in touch with the drive wheel
after the first split second.

After a break a blade can be soldered back
together. Part of the reason I break so many
blades is the Starrett blade stock I solder
my blades up from is thicker than spec
for my wheel radius so the steel gets
work hardened.
