|Chib||Noun: A non-projectile weapon. May be blunt or sharp, can include razors, lead pipes, bits of wood with nails hammered in, Stanley knives, etc... .

So a survivalist knife with a 10-inch blade wi the wee jaggy bits (What ur they fur anyway?) is probably not a chib.
A crossbow or catapult is similarly not a chib. A Star Trek phaser is not a chib.
Probably connected to the word shiv.
