Interactions between electrons in one dimension are fully described at low energies by only a few parameters of the Tomonaga-Luttinger model, which is based on linearization of the spectrum. We consider a model of spinless fermions with short-range interaction via the Bethe-Ansatz technique and show that a Luttinger parameter emerges in an observable beyond the low-energy limit. A distinct feature of the spectral function, the edge that marks the lowest possible excitation energy for a given momentum, is parabolic for arbitrary momenta and the prefactor is a function of the Luttinger parameter, K.
