This question already has an answer here:

I'm looking for a commonly used symbol that denotes a set of vector fields. It looks like an \st{$\chi$} (using the soul package, that is, \usepackage{soul}, but doesn't look so artificial.

Can someone help me? Also, this is my first posting on this SE so I'm not entirely sure of how to format things.
