The tools not actually different if you already have a new 'modern' cartridge tool. It is if you have an old tool from before ISIS/Octalink.
The splines are just the same, it just the hole that need to be larger for ISIS.

You can use the ISIS one on older UNxx bottom brackets.

(ignoring the bottom picture though)
