Chojiro XL traditional grater;
The Chojiro series is made by hand, with the best materials, for professional use.
The consumption of fresh wasabi cannot be understood without its main accessory, the wasabi grater known in Japanese as Oroshigane or Oroshiki. The traditional Japanese grater for fresh wasabi is made of shark skin with a natural cedar wood base, and is considered the best tool to obtain the highest quality wasabi paste.
When grated with this type of grater, the paste obtained is more aromatic and creamy than, for example, with a steel or ceramic grater. In addition, it is capable of generating a large amount of allyl isothiocyanate, this unique compound of fresh wasabi, which produces the sensation of fresh and short-lived pungency, which quickly dissipates through the nasal passages.
