Comparative Overview: Pilot Capless – Metal vs Wood

Here comes another installment of the “Comparative Overview-Series” that already has quite a few episodes.

This is not the first comparative overview here on Scrively that looks at the Pilot Capless. A previous video has seen me comparing the Capless against the Décimo. This time round it is Capless metal vs. wood.

While the Décimo differs against the Capless mostly in diameter and a few other smaller details, the Capless metal vs. wood comparison is mostly one of body material – as well as the more (e.g. logo placement & clip section) or less (e.g. body weight & feel) subtle differences that this entails.

Before we hop into the review, I would like to take the opportunity to thank The Pen Company in the UK for supporting this video overview. You can also buy the Capless Wooden at their webshop (no affiliate-link, just a friendly pointer).

But now, check out the video-overview below, which is as always preceded by some quick facts. Again, I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
