How do I cut an outside Soldier border edge in Granite paver?

I know this is probably really easy, but I have a 3cm(1.25") granite I am using on my deck. I decided to use an outside soldier edge to nicely frame the mini french pattern I am using. I have two outside edges to build around a bay window. How do I acurately measure and cut this outside edge? I'd like a 45 cut coming straight out of the angle. Because of the color granite I used for this section of soldier, I have one shot at getting it right, so figured I would ask first. Thanx.

you're right, its easy just make a cardboard pattern, grab a 4" grinder w/diamond blade, then cut away,,, might have to cut from top & bottom as a 4" blade will only saw 1" deep

A 10" wet saw (tile saw) will also work well----
