OOYA SEISAKUSHO making and selling graters since its establishment in 1928. This extremely lean and functional grates ingredients such as lemon zest, ginger, garlic, wasabi, and other condiment vegetables. Not like other steel and ceramic graters, this tin-plated copper grater with individually raised teeth prevents the ingredients from being crushed, keeping it fresh and perfect in taste. Japanese artisans construct each and every blade by hand using a tool called a tagane and an iron hammer on a plated hard board made of pure copper, which is the same technique from Edo period. Tortoise is the symbol of long life and happiness in Japanese culture.
