Stefang, I don’t know. I think blade choice comes down to, a lot of times, personal choice based on what you’re cutting, and what one finds acceptable.
My personal advice to anyone in this situation is to call Mike at Mike's Workshop. He can usually point you in the right direction and will send you two blades of any style and size to try for only the price of postage.
I have never done marquetry work, yet, but I find that sizes are pretty much the same across the blade styles, roughly. For scroll work, when I need parts to fit together almost perfectly, I go with a #2/0 blade. It is very tiny and leaves very little kerf.
