Lovely little Japanese Oroshi grater for wasabi (horseradish) daikon (radish) ginger, nutmeg etc. It turns food to to a fine paste rather than actually shredding it and is great for a ginger tea. Our friend Pat reckons it's the best thing ever for her masala. It stands up, hangs up, looks like a shoe horn, and is just over 6" tall. Brilliant.
