Wasabi Grater | Vegetable Grater

Wasabi grater (left) by World Vision: the sharp taste and spicy frangrance of wasabi, Japanese horseradish, is created by breaking its cells. The materials of these wasabi graters are shark skin which is said to be the best for grating Japanese horseradish.

World vision carefully uses shark skin to reproduce the late Edo period techniques. This product is being used in the National Wasabi Fair in Japan.

Vegetable grater (right) by Oya-seisakusyo. Pierce small holes using hammers and large wire nails. The blade rows become uneven due to handmade works but this in fact makes it easy to grate without worrying about piercind the same part of vegetables. The sharp blades enables to maintain the moisture, fibers and nutritiousness together. Thus the grated vegetables stay delicious and it's definitely an amazing craftmanship tool.
