A Men's Iron / An Iron for Men

A Men's Iron

In our times a lot of men are ironing their shirts themselves. But manufacturers do not pay a lot of attention to their different demands. Even those few new irons that are meant to address men only have been changed to black color. There are much more possibilities to design an iron more male-like. This concept is one example – powerful, edged, metallic and no reason to hide it but much more to be proud of. Due to a split it even has a practical novel functionality. One simply has to use the lever to lift up the biggest part of the ironing-surface. Thereby its width and length is reduced considerable to more precisely flatten shirt-sleeves.
