What Sets Kurenai Apart
Kurenai is proud to stand out from the crowd, and here’s why:

1. Authentic Japanese Craftsmanship: Each Kurenai knife is meticulously handcrafted in Japan by skilled artisans. This isn’t just about tradition; it’s the secret to our knives’ unmatched durability and razor-sharp edge.

2. Genuine “Made in Japan” Quality: While others claim to be “Made in Japan,” many Damascus knives on the market are actually produced in China or Vietnam by large corporations. We’re the real deal, made with care and precision right here in Japan.

3. Customized for You: To tailor Kurenai to fit the preferences and lifestyles of our international customers, we ensure that our knives can be used for an extended period in households. Ease of maintenance is crucial, and this is facilitated by our blade material, AUS-8, which offers durability and easy maintenance, addressing the unique challenges faced by users.

4. Thoughtful Handle Design: We know that hands come in all shapes and sizes. That’s why we’ve carefully designed our knife handles to ensure a comfortable grip, catering to the needs of our diverse global community.

Production Timeline

Who we are: douzo inc.

douzo inc. is a “Japan-made Lifestyle Brands Company” that rebrands and sells Japanese products for overseas consumers.

Our mission is to maximize the brand value of Japanese products and focus on sharing their unique and excellent quality with the world.

Over the years, we have been selling Japanese products to overseas consumers in various forms. What we have come to realize is that language and cultural barriers are even greater than imagined for small and medium-sized companies with a history in Japan, making it very challenging to sell products abroad. It is also a fact that small and medium-sized companies with traditions and excellent craftsmanship are declining because they are unable to expand their market.

We strive to support these amazing Japanese companies that find themselves in such circumstances, explore new sales channels overseas, deliver high-quality Japanese products to customers worldwide, and serve as a bridge between Japan and the world.
