The speed blood knot is easier to tie than a regular blood knot—particularly with cold hands in freezing temperaturesbecause you don't have to separately deal with two independent tag ends. You start by tying the tag ends together, making them easier to control and handle. The final knot isn't a true blood knot because the tag ends end up facing the same direction instead of opposing directions as in the original blood knot.
