It is refered to as a 'wrist strap' and it is there to help avoid loss of the bayonet when used as a wire-cutter or fighting knife. The smooth plastic doesn't make for the best gripping surface, especially if it is wet. The wrist strap is made of leather or cotton webbing, depending on which country manufactured the bayonet.
