I worked as a welder and carpenter for a while, but eventually found myself stranded in San Antonio. I needed money, and found that my principles crumbled pretty quickly in the face of hunger...so I took a job doing intrusion detection for the USAF. First security tool I used, though...was probably ethereal/wireshark...but that really depends on how you define "security tool."

Given this thread and the topic, that was pretty silly of me. "E" = exploitation.

I still use wireshark on occasion today. But your point about what makes something a security tool is well taken. I guess technically speaking - my first tool was that ASM disk editor program.
