A palm-sized copper grater with a tin coated finish. Commonly used in Japan to grate daikon radish and wasabi, this simple grater shines when it comes to finely grating root veggies and the like.
Each "tooth" is carefully cut and raised by hand by artisans in Japan, using techniques from the Edo period. Because it is hand made, the shape and length of each tooth is slightly distinct, intensifying the overall grating effect. Unlike steel graters, the tin plating also prevents aromatics from being crushed, keeping it perfectly fresh.
Approximately 3.75" x 2.25"
