make sure you column is nvarchar
then check UI that send those data to your DB. All your funky  code looks like some conversion that happens in your front end, not in DB. DB will save whatever comes in.

Make sure your UI that inserts and displays your data can display and read it correctly. here is test on SQL management Studio 2008. I have da

my db collation is SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
create table #tmp (c1 nvarchar(128))

insert into #tmp values ('/æv¿/')
select * from #tmp
