Simply put; The kinfe tool will only do straight cuts. Whereas the bandsaw will follow the polygons whatever direction they may go.... Try making a cut down the center of polygons in a S like formation, using the kinfe tool wouldn't allow you to curve around, whereas the bandsaw will do it automatically. There are other advantages to the bandsaw tool too, but thats the main difference.
