A Broad Axe is an Axe-class weapon available in Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is sold in weapon vendors at Kolima, Xian, and Altin in Golden Sun and at Mikasalla, Naribwe, Kibombo, and Yallam in The Lost Age. Being an Axe-class weapon, a Broad Axe can be equipped on Isaac and Garet in the first game, together with Felix and Piers in the second. It increases the wielder's base Attack rating by 50 points. Its buy value is 1400 coins and its sell value is 1050 coins.
In Golden Sun, Broad Axes can be first bought at Kolima as soon as the town is returned to normal, and it is a suitable upgrade over a Broad Sword that one of your warrior-style Adepts might be equipped with (if they are equipped with a weapon not even as strong as a Broad Sword, a Broad Axe would be all the better to buy).
In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, Broad Axes can be bought at the early town of Mikasalla, meaning you can get one for Felix as soon as you enter the continent of Osenia, which is shortly after completing Dehkan Plateau on the continent of Indra which includes the Themis' Axe artifact weapon. At that point a Broad Axe would be quite a major attack rating boost for Felix to replace the Themis' Axe with it. However, the next powerful weapon Artifact in the game you can get at this point is the Storm Brand early on in the colossal Air's Rock dungeon in Osenia, and if you're heading there right away you should refrain from spending the money on a Broad Axe and wait a little bit for the even stronger (and free) Storm Brand.
