    All the better to eat you with, my pretty!  They were used for stabbing and slashing; basically, the bigger the saber teeth, the more likely they were used to stab with, while the smaller saber-teeth were used to slash with.  Saber-toothed tigers could open their jaws incredibly wide, stab an animal in the neck, and then bite down.
