Video-Overview: Pilot Capless & Décimo

I have already given the Pilot Capless aka Vanishing Point a review a little while ago. In the meantime, I had a Pilot Décimo incoming – the little sibling of the Capless so to speak – as I also had a couple of questions on how the more glossy and matte finishes of the Capless do compare to one another. All of that combined, I thought that a comparative overview video might be helpful. So here we go with a comparison of

  • the glossy black vs. the matte black finish of the Capless
  • gold trim & black vs. a silver trim & black
  • the Capless vs. the Décimo (design, size, weight)
  • the F(ine) nib vs. the M(edium) nib.

Before we hop into the review, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Write Here in the UK for supporting this video overview. You can also buy the Pilot pens 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!
