In this situation:
If a boyfriend is wearing a scary costume but since she didn't know it was him at the moment, she grabbed her pocket knife. It was at the moment he was saying to put it down, took off the mask and told her it was just him. But he's irritated that she reacted that way. It was meant to be a simple scare, in which he would then tell her it's just him immediately.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to defend yourself when you're scared. Actually that's a very human reaction, when we get scared our brains go into fight/flight mode. So you were pretty much on auto pilot when you grabbed that pocket knife. Anyone could have done that.
You can't be irritated at someone that got scared when you SCARED them. On purpose. Your reaction was 100% normal and natural, and your boyfriend should know this. Only idiots think it's funny to scare people like that anyway.0
