Your bandolier is a thrown/range weapon, so it won't help your 1H skills. In EQ2 it's Crushing, btw, not 1hb. It really doesn't matter what kind of crushing weapon you equip. As soon as you start using one in melee you'll get skill-ups. Frankly, scouts hardly ever use crushing, we're slashing/piecing. It's unlikely you're going to get one from questing because of that. I'd check the broker, filtering for primary crushing weapon and swashie.
For titles and almost anything else having to do with your character, press C for the character window. Now I have to remember what tab it's under.... Ah, under the Options tab.
