Japanese Copper Grater (M)

Japanese Copper Grater (M)


This is a handmade tin plated Japanese Copper Grater (Oroshigane). The copper is plated with pewter before being cut into its traditional shape to form a sturdy grater. Unlike the perforated metal of western graters, the teeth of Japanese graters are cut and raised by hand with expert precision using a hammer and chisel. This allows the grated paste to remain on the surface, while the hand crafted teeth retain the fibres of the grated item to maintain their quality. Traditionally used for grating horseradish and wasabi, this item is ideal for grating ginger and garlic to a fine texture.
