In a preferred embodiment, there is provided a conductive non-stick electrode for use with a hemostatic tissue cutting scalpel wherein, a first layer of conductive material having a textured working surface for contacting tissue is adherently deposited along the cutting edge of the scalpel, and a second coating of non-stick material is deposited thereon at least partially filling the textured surface, so that portions of the conductive material are exposed and the electrode is thereby conductive along said working surface but non-sticking while in contact with tissue.
