ABC Wednesday - K

Although I'm very late, it's still Wednesday!

This week the letter is K

K is for KNIFE

This is my box of Kitchen Knives.

I bought them over five years ago, and I don't know where I'd be without them.


If you look closely at the Knives you can see a name -
Kleeneze!


When I was young, the Kleeneze man would come around selling household items like dusters, polishes, and brushes.
I loved watching him taking things out of his magical suitcase for my mother to see.

Now a lady leaves a catalogue and comes back in a few days to take your order.

The catalogue has many more esoteric things than dusters, polishes, and brushes.
It even has Kitchen Knives.

How times change.

To view more K pictures, visit Mrs Nesbit who started the whole idea.

Happy Wednesday (what's left of it!)

Oh Kleeneze - things to clean stuff you never ever thought of cleaning. Or rather 'I never thought of cleaning'.

Nice photos.

Three cheers for Wednesday K! I've always been quite fond of the letter K!

Nothing like having a reliable set of Kitchen Knives from Kleeneze.

I love my kitchen knives too, I could not do without them!
I never heard of Kleeneze eather, but the way they sold their produce sounds familiar, and that memory put a smile on my face!

My brother used to sell knives. He did it through referrals, though. Great shots.
