At Hokkaido Uni Shop, we're pleased to present the Tsubame Sanjyo Brand Japanese Dry Bonito Grater – an essential tool for global enthusiasts of Japanese cuisine!

Discover Authentic Flavors: This manual slicer is perfect for creating fresh, fragrant bonito flakes (katsuobushi), a staple in dashi soup and various Japanese dishes. Whether you're a seasoned chef or a home cook, this tool brings the authentic flavors of Japanese cuisine straight to your kitchen, enabling you to enhance your dishes with the unmistakable umami that only freshly shaved katsuobushi can provide.

Innovative Design for Clean Cooking: The cleverly designed flakes catcher drawer collects all the shaved bonito flakes, ensuring your cooking area remains clean and tidy. Cleanup is a breeze, and the special wooden lid provides a safe storage solution by keeping the blade securely tucked away when not in use.

Craftsmanship You Can Trust: Each Tsubame Sanjyo Brand bonito grater is handcrafted by skilled artisans in Japan, embodying a dedication to quality and precision. This tool is not merely about enhancing the flavors in your dishes; it's about incorporating a piece of Japan's rich culinary tradition into your home.

Preparation Tips for Perfect Bonito Flakes:
1. Blade Adjustment: For ideal flakes, adjust the blade to protrude about 0.1mm (roughly the thickness of a sheet of paper) to avoid creating powder.
2. Softening Hard Bonito: Briefly warm the surface of hard bonito over low heat for 30 seconds to facilitate smoother shaving.
3. Keep Your Blade Sharp: A dull blade will not produce quality flakes. Maintain the sharpness of your blade for the best results.

How to Skillfully Shave Bonito Flakes:
1. Shave Before Use: To capture the best aroma and flavor, shave the bonito flakes immediately before cooking.
2. Clean Your Bonito: For honkarebushi, it's important to remove any surface mold with a damp or dry cloth prior to use.
3. Shaving Technique: Ensure optimal results by shaving from the skinless side towards you, with the tapered end facing towards you, and avoid shaving against the grain.

Enjoy the art of Japanese cooking with the Tsubame Sanjyo Brand Japanese Dry Bonito Grater. It's not just a tool; it's a gateway to exploring authentic, flavorful Japanese dishes that are sure to impress anyone who experiences them.
