If you truly have a snatch block you should be able to find a way to open it and put the line round the sheave without cutting the line. My new Garhauer snatch block has a plunger that you pull and then one cheek swivels to expose the sheave. My old "no name" snatch blocks have a spring loaded clasp that can be opened to expose the sheave. I am not familiar with Harken's design

That line is a continuous loop and whipped nicely where it attaches to the lines on the collar.  I don't really think the idea is to cut those nice knots?
