Help identify this Triangle tool

I recently found this tool in my pantry and have absolutely no idea where it came from. Looks like a cheese greater with spikes. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks. Where are the spikes? It just looks like the holes are level with the surface.

Will it grate cheese? It looks like it folds.

I don't think it does. It has some type of legs that would go on a counter. It's definitely not a grater.

Figured it out after some grueling research... It's a ginger grater!! Not sure why I would need that.

...or a horseradish grater. Appropriate for fibrous roots according to google.

Any time I need to grate fresh ginger, I reach for my trusty microplane grater. No uni-tasker ginger grater for me, keeping in line with the thinking of Alton Brown.
