Subject: Using cracked non-ascii passwords in a wordlist

I'm trying to work at getting an efficient way to feed previously cracked
hashes back in to a wordlist for future use. I'm using the 2015 Crack Me if
you Can competition hashes for this effort.

One such hash, shown below, was cracked using non-ascii characters. From
the output of `john --show | less`:


As you can see, there are non-ascii characters in the resulting hash.
However, putting the actual non-ascii characters in to a wordlist is
ineffective at cracking the same hash on a fresh machine.

Is there any way to make john output cracks in a more cannonical format?
Alternatively, can I input non-ascii wordlists in a more cannonical format?
