What special tools do you keep in your Pen Testing arsenal?

With so many tools available to a Pen Tester its a bit of a nightmare trying to decide which ones to key on for a new guy. I do consider certain ones must haves like Nmap, Netcat, JtR, the Aircrack and Burpe suite.
Can you experienced security folks make any suggestions for 'special use' or unique  tools I should be looking into? 

Thanks!

Check out:

and experiment. Practice makes perfect. Things aren't so overwhelming once you familiarize yourself with what's out there. There's often more than one tool for a given task, and it comes down to personal preference. You'll get an idea of what works for you as you become more experienced.
The day you stop learning is the day you start becoming obsolete.
