You've got my attention. Sword-and-sorcery fantasy, historical fiction?

High Fantasy, sword and sorcery. Earlier titles have flopped. So I'm working on new ones.

I'd try the shorter The Outcast's Sword (or, shorter yet, simply Outcast's Sword). This focuses on the sword part of the title, which sounds more powerful, to me. If the sword is so pivotal that it belongs in the title, I'd play it up like this.

If the more important part of the title is the fact of being an outcast, then I'd keep shopping for a title, unless the sword part of it implies a mercenary angle?

No, not mercenary. But some variation on this seems to be the direction I need to go with.
