A Little History

Brigadier General Daniel Morgan was the most successful field leader of the American Revolution – and perhaps the least remembered. History has not been kind to the "Old Wagoneer" as he frequently called himself. The stories of this great patriot and the men that served under him in the siege of Boston, in the assault on Quebec, the destruction of Burgoyne’s army at Saratoga, and his devastating defeat of Banastre Tarleton at the Battle of Cowpens, are nearly forgotten.

His company, "Morgan's Riflemen,” had a significant advantage over the others. Instead of the smooth-bore weapons used of most British and most American companies, his men carried rifles. They were lighter and easier to fire, and because they were rifled were much more accurate. Morgan's company used guerrilla tactics, first shooting the Indian guides who led the British forces through the rugged terrain. They then targeted the officers. The British Army considered these guerrilla tactics to be dishonorable; however, they created chaos within the British ranks and ultimately played a pivotal role in the victory of the American military. 

About Thrux Lawrence

Make It Strong Enough - Then Double It

This phrase, make it strong enough, then double it, is attributed to the legendary John Browning.  It was his mantra in how he designed his firearms so that they would be reliable and robust.  This same phrase could be the mantra of Thrux Lawrence, based out of Coeur D'Alene, Idaho.  Founded by Tanden Lauder with the simple goal of making goods that last, Thrux Lawrence has become manufacturer of goods meant to outlast their purchaser.  

Tandon long had a fascination with antiques and items that were highly functional and made very well.  He collected such items as a teenager and was became disappointed by modern day standards of product design and manufacturing.  He set out to create a brand that would be synonymous with the highest of standards and with products that were built by artisans, in America, and that would last a lifetime.  

Thrux Lawrence's approach to design is summed up on their site, "We start with the fundamental concept: “This design needs to be better, last longer, and function more smoothly.” We continually examine our collection to identify keys to longevity, and style. Once we combine the details, refine the function, and add “heft” to materials, we prototype the item, field test it, then collaborate with artisans for the build."  The Japanese call this commitment to continues improvement, kaizen, and that idea is imbedded in the psyche of Tanden and all of Thrux Lawrences employees.
