My sticking to

A grater that can make delicious oroshi.


--- What is the goodness of the copper grater?

"We hit the copper plate with a thickness of 2 millimeters again and again to tighten it and then we start to make sharp perforations. By doing so, the strength of the copper increases, so sharp perforations can be made on the plate. Stableness increases.
And because we make the size of each sharp point delicately different, it can catch vegetable's surface efficiency. And we also make the sharp point a little bit big,therefore each pierce of the completed oroshi is big and it keeps water. Tasty crunchy oroshi is completed. It is the taste only by the handicrafts.

Producer's profile

Ohya's grater which have been loved over three generations.


Kang! Kang! Kang! Kang! ( Japanese onomatopoeia which means sounds of hitting something.)
When the craftsman's hammer(Tsuchi) moves rhythmically on the copper plate, in no time some sharp points are made. In this way, all sharp points are made by hand. He finishes three plates in 1 hour, 24 sheets in one day.

Now, craftsmen making handmade copper grater in Japan has decreased, Ohya works continues making the grater over three generations, Mr Ohya says that he would like to continue to protect the handmade copper grater for the future.

At the time of predecessor, a grater was sent to be repaired.It was so old one which the first generation made before the war.
Even if it gets old, it is hoped to be repaired and used again. It shows attractiveness of Ohya's grater.

Mr Ohya says that he wants to continue the traditional way of making the grater which has been loved by a lot of people for many years, and want to make products which are loved by young people and easy to use.

From morning till night, the sounds of hammer (Tuchi) echoes,Mr Ohya and craftsmen of Ohya factory continue producing the copper graters today.
