Default Looking for the one-inch punch

Good evening,

Just as the tittle says, I am looking for the one inch punch. Perhaps a "preset skill", formula or method to emulate or replicate the one-inch punch; has any of you stumbled with this technique?

Maybe I could buy a crushing innate attack, add some enhancements and then pay for "adaptation to brawling":

Innate attack (Crush) 3 for 33 CP
Armor Divisor (3), +100%; Double Knockback, +20%
Skill Adaptation 1, for 1 CP
Innate attack to Brawling

Maybe you know something better than this?

What do you think?
Thank you!

If you're going for the Innate Attack route and calling it a 1 Inch Punch, there's no reason to use a Perk slot, and, you're spending too many points.

Crushing Attack 3: Armor Divisor, (+100%) Based On Brawling (Own Roll), (+0%) Damage Modifier: Double Knockback, (+20%) Melee Attack: Cannot Parry, (-5%) Melee Attack: Reach C, (-30%) [28]

For an ability that's essentially a modification on a natural attack, I'd be more inclined to go with the Imbuements from GURPS Power-Ups 1 than an advantage. That looks like a combination skill consisting of Forceful Blow and Penetrating Strike, with Brawling as the specialization.

I see, I will try this one indeed!

This suggestions looks fancy, I am not very familiar with Imbuements so I will check it as well!

Thank you!
