Is a jigsaw the best saw? Why or why not?
I have a Skil jigsaw, its a 6.0a I think. I got it because I’m a beginner and easy to use and really combines all saws into one. Would you agree its the best saw?
BQ: If you could only have one saw in your workshop, what would it be?

no, it’s not the best saw… it’s certainly not the only saw you will need.
Jigsaw doesn’t cut straight so easily… circular saw is better for that. Jigsaw is no good for detail work… you need a fretsaw. A jigsaw is not good for accurate carpentry… you need a tenon saw and / or backsaw and a ripsaw for that.
For cutting trees you need a chain saw or a bow saw. A jig saw is no use at all for this
For cutting metal you need a hacksaw. You can do some cutting with a jigsaw but for some work you need a hand saw.
All of the types of saw were invented and refined because they perform some specialised function that no other saw is good at. No one saw does everything. A workshop with only one saw is not a properly equipped general workshop.

If you want to waste your time and use a jig saw for everything do it.But,upgrade to saws all and have potential to whack your office worker hands.Make a man out of ya.
Suggestion by Bob
While the jigsaw may be capable of lots of things it is mostly used for scroll work and notching etc. Different saws for different uses. It would be difficult to get by with just one saw, I would probably opt for a band saw.
Suggestion by Just guessing
A jig saw probably the best saw for little jobs around the house. One saw won’t do everything. A hand saw would be a good inexpensive addition.
