you can resaw with a 3/8” 3 tpi blade assuming the saw has the power to do it. Sharp blades are important for resawing because the narrower the blade the easier it will deflect if not sharp. This is why serious resawers prefer wider blades with greater “beam strength”, if I recall the terms correctly.

You can regrind (sharpen) the gullets of a 3tpi blade by turning it inside out and upside down on the saw and grinding the gullets with a Dremel type tool. Works well at least a few times before the blade starts to act weird and the teeth would need reset to sharpen further.
