What Is a Flat Sadiron?

A sadiron is a piece of metal that has a handle on one side and is smooth and polished on the opposite side. It is a tool used for ridding clothing of wrinkles.

Sadirons are solid objects that resemble triangles. They come in the natural shades of metal and weigh between 5 and 9 pounds. The pointed tip on them makes ironing around buttons a simpler task. The heft on a sadiron enables the tool to press fabric flat and keeps heat from escaping. These flatirons come with no cords because they are the irons of an era before electricity.
