- The subject of fabric primary handle evaluation is discussed in this paper. Some problems existing in Kawabata's system for primary hand values are revealed, which are considered inevitable in an approach involving subjective sensory assessment. Based on the same theory introduced in Part I, a new proposal for the objective evaluation of primary handle is presented by which the necessary and sufficient number of primary handle terms and the corresponding primary handle values are obtained. The methods and results of determining and testing the physical meanings of these primary handle terms are also provided.
