"My name is Mariano Nicolas Garabato and I am from Argentina, since I was 15 years old I began to learn trades related to metal and I began my path as an artisan with jewelry and silversmithing, I began with forging approximately 18 years ago, a trade that I studied together a welder (stick welder, Mig-Mag and Tig), I am an Autocad designer, an electronics technician and I have studied Argentine Creole silversmithing for three and a half years, I have offered forging classes in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Denmark, Germany and Spain. I am interested in the recovery of historical techniques and historical reconstruction, which is why I do some work based on historical findings such as those I did for museums in Denmark. I have received some training in forging from master blacksmiths in Spain on forging in general and Spanish rapier sword"
