For resawing on my 14", i'm very pleased with the Highland Woodslicer as mentioned earlier. Most decent blades will cut what you put in front of them, but the "best" blade will be one that is properly matched to the task. My Woodslicer can (and has) crosscut with good results, but if i'd taken the time to swap blades to the task i'd have had better results. Last weekend i cut a 15" x 4" piece of 1/4" phenolic from a 24" x 24" sheet with the Woodslicer, did the job but i knew that i was going to smooth the edges anyway. I'd not want to cut arcs with that blade, good as it is!!
Summary--the best bandsaw blade will be a good blade that is matched to the task at hand, coupled with a good set-up on the saw. The bandsaw can be an extremely flexible machine, and perform a lot of different jobs. The only way to pick one single best blade is if you are only doing one single type of cut on your saw. For that reason, as you're getting started, might be worth calling Highland, Timberwolf,
woodcraft bands, or your vendor of choice to order a few different blades that fit you and your saw. Be prepared to tell them what type of work you intend to do most of the time (resaw? circle/curve cutting? bandsaw boxes?). Then watch Alex Snodgrass on YouTube in his bandsaw setup video--well worth the 30 minutes of so in my opinion.
