If you get close, you will get a prompt that says “Touch the Sword Hilt”. However, when you do that, you are hit by lightning. And an electro-charged status which almost drains half of your health.

To solve the "Touch the Sword Hilt" puzzle, players must have an Electrogranum when they touch the sword hilt. Whenever you come across a sword hilt puzzle, you will find an Electrogranum summon nearby. Look for it and summon an Electrogranum.

Once you have the Electrogranum, go and touch the sword hilt. Doing that will summon a Samurai enemy. Defeat him to get a common chest as a reward.
