That's why I asked which granite. When you mentioned "hewn blocks" I assumed that you meant the rough-hewn blocks, not the interior of the tomb.

Different techniques existed requiring different appliances for the final finish.

Compare the rough blocks with the sarcophagus.

I've never been inside that mastaba and those photographs aren't very clear, but the question about tools applies to just about every edifice on the plateau.
