Quickest way to copy large InnoDB table

Is there a fast way I can copy a large (InnoDB) table (not that many rows, but what rows there are contain blobs and are large)? I have a table T1 and I want T1_copy, is there some stored procedure or other that I can invoke via JDBC to perform the copy that will *not* involve doing an INSERT INTO...(SELECT * FROM....) as I think that would prove too slow.
I think I may be asking the impossible here. Basically if I need a copy then ultimately something is going to have to copy that data, and that will involve I/O, and therefore will be slow. Any suggestions on the fastest way to do it?
