With many thanks to the kindness of blog reader Henrik (of Denmark), here is a box of Penol Twin 2011 double ended colour pencils.
Henrik tells me that Penol woodcase pencils are a brand revival. Penol seems to have done some regrouping, and are introducing older product lines, though these products are no longer made in Denmark.
The set has 18 pencils. They are hexagonal and factory sharpened. There is no statement of origin, though the packaging has text in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, and Finnish.
All in all, a lot of fun!

Proving, yet again, that a good mascot can carry the day. I buy the occasional set of colored pencils as a gift for Japanese kids, and I think this character would be a huge hit.
Thanks for posting – you photos really makes the Penols look good.
@Matt Mangham: I’ll tell Penol;-). It might even be cheaper and easier for them as I suspect the pencils to be of “Asian origin”.
The only thing I don’t like about your blog is that I can’t usually find the nifty stuff you describe. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a ‘Buy Now’ button each time you showed us such unusual pencils?
Joel, I wish that was possible.
