A gentleman 'armed to eat' at a moments notice - with cutlery to hand in his waistcoat pocket.
The Scottish Word:

Reel.

“Oi Cherlie! Ye canna see green cheese but yer een reel.”

Translated:

reel: spin, rotate, also a type of dance.

“Hey! Charles. You can’t see green cheese but your eyes spin (you can’t see food without wanting to eat it).”

[reel spelled out in the phonetic alphabet.]
