l wonder if they've been tied before.

Centuries ago, no doubt.

That might be the case, but until proven otherwise, a moniker like Double Alpineer's FBK loops, sounds eligible and rather euphonic so far ( aka Double Lineman's ABK loops :)).

Requesting load testing to determine jamming resistance in the following loading profiles:

[ ] Bi-axial loading from SPart-to-SPart
[ ] Eye loading (with one SPart anchored)

Alan Lee perhaps?

Or anyone else?

                                                                         Mirror tying method

1. Form a Z loop, a bight, and an S loop knotting scheme, like the one illustrated in first image (in contsast with the tying method described at reply#1, where the initial configuration was S loop, bight, Z loop).

2. Place the S loop over the Z loop, (or the Z over the S loop), as shown in second image. Note, that you have to place the S loop, (or the Z loop), on Z loop's segment that is a direct continuation of the bight component, in contrast with the tying method presented at reply#1.

3. Pass the bight through this configuration, in the following order, ~ under, over, under, over ~.

The resulting mirror knot is shown in the next two images, in a loose dressing state, in front and back view.
