What your must have tool?

Starting a tool box build for average joe. Just wondering what the one tool everyone has that they couldn't do without. Mine is my cordless 18v dewalt. I even used it to carve my kids pumpkins, worked great to.

I am a tech and got over 25 thousand invested in tools. Honestly I think I use my 3/8 flex head ratchet more than anything. I would get a good set of ratchets like that (1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 in drives. I use snap on but everyone has their own opinion.
