I am referring specifically to the Wand and Athame.  There are different traditions that hold the Wand as Fire and the Athame as Air, and those that conversely hold the Athame as Fire and the Wand as Air.  Now, I have felt inclined to think of the Athame as fire and the Wand as Air, but what I've heard of specific tradition generally seems to suggest otherwise.  The Four Treasures of Ireland held by the Tuatha de Danaan are supposed to include a sword that represents air . . . or at least that is the association given to it nowadays.  If you look at it from a Tarot Standpoint, Swords is related to Air, while Wands is Fire.  And of course, the associations of swords applies to athames by extention, even though they are more specific.

So, in light of the different takes on the tools' elemental correspondences, I was interested in hearing some arguments in favor of a particular set of correspondences.
