the hilt is the part of the sword that shields the hand or is the transition part of the sword from blade to the handle. literally means to go all the way one can with the sword "take it to the hilt" ... but is used as a metaphor in all situations.
the hilt prevented his hand from being injured when his hand slipped off the handle.

i pressed it to the hilt before that bear finally relaxe.
