In at least one orthography for Swiss German, /kx/ is written |k|. Of course,
this assumes you don't need |k| for anything else. There's also a longstanding
tradition to use |q| for anything that's back and lacks an obvious
representation, so that's too a decent option if |q| isn't taken. Underlined
'k' is another option (used for [x] in one romanization of Hebrew, IIRC).
You could use the pound sign, £, for the velar lat. fric.
