Based on what you have said, I agree with you. You may brandish a weapon when doing so is based on a perceived immediate threat of severe bodily harm or death. As the other guy was threatening to kill you---I agree that the charged should be dropped.
You will want to plead not guilty and ask for an attorney. The attorney will likely be able to persuade the prosecutor to drop the matter is the facts are as you said.
