Oroshigane

A small food grater, commonly used to grate wasabi root or daikon radish.

Oroshigane specifically describes metal graters (usually made of steel or tin-copper mixes) but more generally describe graters made of any material (including ceramics, wood or plastic). Oroshigane have sharp teeth and often a small well at the bottom to catch the grated item, usually daikon radish, ginger or horseradish.
