Ooya Seisakusho Wasabi Grater
What a wonderful masterpiece this little wasabi/ginger grater from Ooya Seisakusho is. Since each blade of the grater is raised through human handwork, the arrangement of the blades will become irregular. Such irregularity, as a result, allows users to smoothly grate, wasabi, radish and ginger, as these blades successively touch the surfaces.
The edges of these blades are very sharp because the blades are raised over a hard copper plate that is pressed and tighten. As foods are grated with these sharp-edged blades, their fiber and moisture wouldn't separate. The grater's colors are vivid, and they extract the original taste of the foods, leaving a texture that is soft and pleasant on the tongue.
The manufactury Oya Seisakusho was founded in 1928 in Asakusa, Tokyo.
They specialize in manufacturing native copper graters, in Wako City, Saitama Prefecture.
