American Sign Language: "metal"

To do the sign for "metal" or "steel" place an "X" handshape under your chin near your throat.  Slide the X forward about 3 inches and repeat.  The movement isn't like shaving, rather you use a flicking movement. Some people flick it forward at the wrist, others use a bit more of the elbow.
