The Dragon-Killing Swords or simply Dragon Swords are swords made by Eve using Hypolyes' blood to hunt/slay dragons, it's unknown how many were created but most of them were destroyed with only 5 or 6 (tops) existing.
At some point after creating the dragons, their mother Eve realised that they were too powerful, violent and reckless and endangered the Natural Order by outclassing the humans in a way that wasn't fair and breaking the balance between monsters and humans hunting eachother, Hypolyes then choose to sacrifice himself in order to Eve to use his blood to forge special swords that could slay dragons.
In Like A Virgin, upon Bobby's advice, Dean visited Dr. Visyak on how to deal with dragons; specifically how to kill one. The doctor replied that dragons can only be killed with a blade that was forged in their kin's own blood. Dean noted the conundrum: something like that can only be made by killing a dragon, which cannot be done without such a blade at one's disposal in the first place. Fortunately, Visyak happens to have one in her possession. The sword is bound to a stone to protect it, and Dr. Visyak told Dean that, according to the lore, only a knight ready to slay a dragon can pull the sword from the stone. Dean was unable to extract the sword so he resorted to plastic explosives, which, although freed the sword from the stone, also broke the sword in half. Dr. Visyak gave a horrified look at the broken, priceless sword.

- In the book Bobby Singer's Guide to Hunting, Bobby mentions that when he was in Japan, an old man showed him a samurai sword that was used to slay a great beast by the old man's great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather (Bobby says that probably there were even more "greats" in there), Bobby later associates this story with dragon lore and mentions that it is possible that the great beast was a dragon and that it would make the samurai sword a dragon-killing one.
