What cranks are these?

I bought a bike. It came with these cranks. They're very cool, but I have no idea what they are. Any ideas?

Thanks!

The answer I have is the same as the punchline to the joke:

Ellefino

No labels are on them, and nothing is stamped. I'm pulling them tomorrow to replace my bent spindle. They're square taper, FYI.

Anyone?

thanks.

The arms look like profiles, or cook bros. There are many things that are telling me that they aren't though...

I don't think they're Cook Bros. They might be old Syncros.

I think Bento Box Boy should move this to the BMX threads. Those are some BMX cranks from what I can tell. Someone there will know. Most likely Beerman.
