Background / Comments
This is a word whose etymology is more interesting to me than the word itself. Our word is simply a combination of sad and iron. However, what I didn’t know (did you?) is that sad has an obsolete sense of “heavy, solid” – and it is this meaning that is used in our word. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a sadiron.
