Not sure how much resawing will eventually do but would look at less expensive blades even though cannot resharpen them. Especially starting out with your band saw.

Many people choose to buy new carbide blades over resharpening themselves or sending out due to blades not cutting like new. Not all 14” band saws can handle 3/4” blade even though manufacturers claim they will. Not to worry 1/2” blades have been used for resawing for long time.

Nice to know article that could save you some money.
