Default how do i make double chamfered shiplap siding

I am having to make my own siding for a remodel project I am doing on my house. I initially thought I had tongue and groove with a v notch. but after removing a window, I could see it is actually a shiplap but it is chamfered or what I have seen called v notched on both side, when 2 pieces are assembled, it looks like a v groove. The reason I am having to make it is the size is odd. It is 9" coverage width. If anyone has a suggestion how I should go about milling this out myself. I am not a novice with my router and table, but I am not a master with it either. Ideally it would be nice to find one bit that will make the lap and the v cut in a single pass.
Thanks You. Jim

Could be done on table saw, cut your rabbit with a dado blade, then go back & cut your 45 deg. angle.

Making sawdust & scraps all at the same time

Ahh, it just came back to me! I haven't used that for a couple of decades.
I think if I was doing it, I'd do the T&G machining first, then run the center 'v' then the two outside 1/2 v's .
Don't even bother trying to do the T&G with a chamfer at the same time...absolutely no upside if things don't work out. I'll see if I can find a cross-section for the members that aren't familiar with it.

Most places-- Having a matching pair (2 sets) of custom moulding cutter knives made would be around $30-$50....

But yes, what Dan said... Can be done with a router in 2 steps for each profile (2 finished compound profiles).
