It's been a while since I reviewed a brown ink, and I'd forgotten how much I like them. There's just something about the earthy richness of a good brown ink that I really like to see on the page. This is a very good brown, and one that maybe unique in my collection. I think the closest might be Franklin-Christoph's Brown 732, but the Delta ink is darker, I believe.
Aside from the great color, this ink also flows really well in both a fine medium nib and a big broad nib. It also behaves really well on copy paper, with just a couple of little bleeds from the broad nib and no bleeding at all with the medium.

These are 30ml containers, according to Anderson Pens. It's odd that neither the bottle or the box advertise that fact. They're the same bottles that Pelikan and Kaweco use, though
Browns are a difficult color to pin down, and I have plenty of brown inks, so I've given you lots of comparisons.

So, it's a great brown. One of those colors that is a little hard to quantify. The performance on copy papers is great, and I don't really have anything bad to say about the ink (aside from the poor water-resistance). It appears that this ink goes for $15 at Anderson Pens, and that's a little expensive for a bottle this size. It's in line with the Kaweco inks that are in the same bottles (and a bit more than the Pelikan inks), though, so it seems about par for the course. Import fees, I'd imagine.
