Oftentimes, there is more than one tool that can perform a particular job. From that point you have to narrow down which one will suit your aim the best and if possible, be worth the investment in the future. For instance a sabre saw, band saw and scroll saw can all cut curves, so beyond that you have to narrow it down further: how tight of curves do you need to make? will you need your work to be supported? How portable does it need to be? and so on.
