They are! They're made by Faber Castell (coincidentally their factories are right here in our host country, but we can only get student-grade products here...) and they're an oil-based pencil.

Here's a link to them on Dick Blick: Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils - BLICK art materials

I got my set of 120 (slightly used) on ebay for less than $70, which included a new leather case. I'd suggest keeping an eye out there! Still very proud of that great deal.
