Most all of these log cabin tools can be purchased on ebay for a decent price if you will not be anxious. One week a broad axe with a curved handle will sell for around $100.00. Then two weeks later a similar axe fetches near $50.00. I have seen them show up occasionally at local auctions but never when I needed them! I try to avoid antique shops and dealers as they have these items marked up too high hoping to catch a collector. Read here how I have gotten many free log woodworking tools.
