Sakai Takayuki Samegawa Oroshi

by Sakai Takayuki


The Samegawa Oroshi (grater) is made from shark skin and is traditionally used to grate wasabi. Shark skin has finer teeth than the surface of a typical grater, which produces a super-fine grating of wasabi that has a high content of air pockets, therefore maximize the essential flavors of wasabi roots. This fine samegawa oroshi by Sakai Takayuki is made of high-quality shark skin and natural wood.
