My understanding is that in early freemasonry, there was a more primitive secret in the East, consisting of the Amen Ashlar, the Lamp, and The Gavel… which only made sense through reading the Volume of the Sacred Law, the Bible.

There are variations between jurisdictions of the working tools of each degree. It make sense that there might also be variations in the tools of the Master of the lodge. Some of the tools I was presented with upon taking the Oriental Chair are part of the working tools of a Master Mason in other jurisdictions, for example.
