Looks like a Siberian Moosenuckle, but I'm not sure.

this looks like a fisherman's (single) bend with the tails tucked back through the opposing overhand knot. I suspect you could tie a fisherman's bend with double-barrel knots instead (the standard) and tuck the tails through the opposing barrels... this might make the DF easier to untie than it usually is, though it's always damn strong (as your tests showed).

Dammit major sorbet, how did you entirely erase your comment?

Anyways, you know you're going immediately to try this out the first chance you get...

A sheepshank maybe?

The world of nautical knots is not for the timid. Just google 'nautical knots' and be prepared for an onslaught!

I agree. If it already has a name, lets just say fuck it, that's the siberian moosknuckle. That's better than some crap-ass sailing knot name anyway.

agreed. Maybe take some of the cord and test its breaking strength with no knots

What you should try is that "untucked" knot but with
the yellow-black rope entering so it crosses OVER the
red-blue END, and equivalently the red-blue crosses
UNDER the opp. end--the overhands will thus be like
minimal Timber hitches, and the draw of the u-turn
of each rope will pull its own end around the opposite
rope.
You might also want same-handed Overhands rather
than opposite-handed (mmmmm, maybe not).
