yoma 32

two-handed slaughter of the two organs

the hand that is washed & hands the knife over to another's hand to complete the slaughter.

(slaughtering involves cutting the windpipe and the gullet. the High priest doesn't have to do both but can hand the knife to another priest to complete the slaughter so he can catch the blood)
