As mentioned previously, the important thing is that the total kerf be at least as wide as the riving knife. Keep in mind that the actual overall kerf width of the blade is the width of the teeth, plus the combined runout of the arbor and blade while in motion, which will always be a tad wider than the actual tooth width. IMO it's better to error on the safe side, so I'd aim more towards the 3/32" TK blades with a stated width of a bit more than 0.094" if possible. The narrower Freud blades "might" be fine, but there are enough other comparable choices that there's really no reason to chance it.
