Tabletop Oval Grater (for condiments)


This grater for condiments (oval type) is shaped like a little tray.
If there is a bit of need to add grated wasabi or ginger to your meal, put this grater to work and serve it right to the table.

The bronze grater, passed down through generations since the Edo period, is made by slogging bronze plates and by adjusting each edge to stand, which allows the blades to be sharp, wide and irregular in position.
Using sharp blades keep the fibers in vegetables such as radish, wasabi and ginger virtually intact. This way, a mild and non-watery flavor can be enjoyed from the grated ingredients and food.
