Do be so sure about any sawshop being able to do a good job on carbide bandsaw blades… they don’t use the same machines used for circular saw blades.

The 3/4” Trimaster doesn’t exhibit any “bad traits” when resawing as long as the tension is correct. A wider blade would be nice but I wouldn’t use wider than a 3/4” on the Rikon, I won’t use a TM wider than 1” on my Minimax due to tensioning. The RK you could go up to 1” since it has a thinner gauge backer, the thin kerf is better wood savings and uses less hp.
