We love our American Inkin bell. Made by Teido Bill Stephens, a monk friend of ours living in Virginia, it is the only American-made inkin bell that we know of. The spun brass bell, salvaged ipe wood striker, and black walnut handle combine in Shaker simplicity, with the striker fitting elegantly into the handle when the bell is at rest. Also included is a burlap resting pad for the bell. The 2.7” bell has a clear, lasting tone. Each inkin is individually hand crafted and unique. (Pictured above with our Zen Clappers and Folding Zabuton.)

An inkin bell is traditionally used to begin and end Zen meditation sittings.

    I purchased this inkin because it seemed like a relatively inexpensive product of high quality that was made with care. I found it exactly as it was described and it meets my needs nicely as someone who is jiki for online zanzen. The sound is clean and resonance very good. The design is thoughtful and when held, the inkin feels like it was lovingly handcrafted. Very happy with this purchase.
