potassium hydrogen carbonate as buffer?

A lab downstairs from mine just moved and I raided their chemical shelf. I grabbed some potassium chloride as a general salt and some sodium hydrogen carbonate (sodium bicarb, bicarb of soda, or baking soda). They also had potassium hydrogen carnbonate, which I took thinking that it should work as an alkaline buffer in exactly the same way as the sodium bicarb. Can anyone think of a reason not to do this, or has anyone used it?

If not I'll try it one one guinea fish and let you know.
